Tevez: Serie A the most difficult league

The forward - who enjoyed spells in Argentina, Brazil and England prior to last summer's switch to the Bianconeri - has a new found respect for Italy's top flight

Juventus attacker Carlos Tevez feels that Serie A is the most difficult league on a tactical level he has ever played in.

The 30-year-old has a wealth of experience in various divisions across the world, having played for Boca Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham, Man United and Manchester City prior to joining the Bianconeri last summer.

And while Serie A no longer attracts the biggest names in world football as it did during the 1990s and much of the early-2000s, Tevez believes tactically the league is unrivalled.

"Of all the championships in which I have played, the Italian league is definitely the most difficult and tactical," he told the club's official website.

Tevez then went on to stress that he's not surprised by Juventus' fine run of form in Serie A this term.

"We all know that we have the potential on and off the field. We are a strong team and we are very hard to be beat when we play together.

"Juventus are a great club. You realise how big Juve are when you see how all the teams are desperate to beat us."

Tevez has netted 15 goals in 26 Serie A appearances since joining the club from City in the summer of 2013.
