Carlos Tevez announced he was leaving Boca Juniors although he stopped short of declaring he would not play football again.

"This is one of the saddest days of my life, but this decision is for the best... because I have nothing more give," the Argentine player said on Friday. "In Boca, mentally, you have to be 120 per cent, and I'm not, and I'm not going to be."

Tevez, whose father died three months ago, said he wanted to spend more time with his family.
