FIFA 18: Carlos Tevez is back in the game – but has been massively downgraded

The Argentinian has rejoined Boca Juniors after a seven-month stint in China

Carlos Tevez has returned to FIFA 18 – after spending a few months in China.

The Argentinian returned to boyhood club Boca Juniors after, what he described, as a seven-month ‘holiday’ playing for Shanghai Shenhua.

Sadly, although the 33-year-old was once a real force in the game, his FIFA 18 stats are far from impressive.

The striker has dropped from an overall rating of 83 to just 78 – and his pace is now hovering around the low 70s, down from 81.

It’s a far cry from his best card on FIFA 14, which boasted 88 pace, 91 dribbling and 94 shooting – with an overall of 92.

It’s no all bad news, though. Tevez still has 85 shot power and 82 composure, so he’ll be sure to finish some chances.

The forward endured a miserable time in China, netting four goals in 16 appearances.

Still, during his time there, he was the highest earning player in the world with wages of £650,000 a week.

When it comes to FIFA, though – we doubt he’ll be worth the money.
