Carlos Tevez's Boca Juniors return put in shade by teammate

Buenos Aires: Carlos Tevez was overshadowed on his return to Boca Juniors after 11 years away on Saturday when teammate Jonathan Calleri scored a spectacular `rabona` goal in the 2-1 win over Quilmes.

Sebastian Palacios gave Boca a first-half lead before Calleri grabbed the crucial second for the league leaders after his first attempt was blocked.

Alexis Canello reduced the arrears later in the game for the visitors at a packed Bombonera stadium.

Tevez, 31, had spent the last decade in Europe, playing for the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus.

Last season, he scored 29 goals in Turin, earning a second Serie A title and a runners-up spot in the Champions League.

Tevez played for his beloved Boca from 2001 to 2004 before moving to Corinthians in Brazil. 

From there he joined West Ham in England in 2006 and then played for Manchester United before moving to rivals Manchester City for more than 40 million pounds ($60 million) in 2009. 

He joined Juventus in 2013 after four seasons at City and last season was the Italian league`s second top scorer with 20 goals as Juventus won the league and reached the Champions League final where they lost to Barcelona.
