Tevez: Ballon d'Or win impossible in Serie A now

The former Manchester City striker cannot imagine himself winning the prestigious individual award in the future, but is keen to make history in other ways with Juventus
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez believes it is nearly impossible for a player in Serie A to win the Ballon d'Or.

The Argentina international has been in sublime form this season and currently leads the Italian goal scoring charts with 13 goals in 20 appearances.

Nevertheless, the 30-year-old does not expect to ever win the prestigious individual award.

"Winning the Ballon d'Or is difficult, especially given that in Italy football is different," Tevez told JTV.

"There aren't as many goals in Serie A as elsewhere."

Juventus are on course to win their fourth consecutive Scudetto, holding a seven-point lead over second-placed Roma, and Tevez is keen to make history with the Turin giants.

"Winning four consecutive championships is not an easy feat, especially in such a tactical and physical league," he added.

"If we were to secure our fourth Serie A title on the spin, we'll be making even more history."

Tevez enjoyed successful spells at West Ham United, Manchester United and Manchester City before joining Juventus in 2013 and he has fond memories of his time in England.

"I think the Premier League is the best league to play in. But here in Italy you run more and it all comes down to tactics."
