In a press conference after his appointment, the Apache He expressed his feelings and made it clear that the most important thing the club has is its people and the unconditional support from the stands:
The first challenge as a technician was taken in Rosario Central by its people. I had many offers, but Rosario has that plus of people that means that if we do things well, we can make a lot of noise and a lot of history. I trust that we can do something nice with Rosario Central. I am completely convinced. I had signed up some clubs that I liked and Central was one of those four. When they called me, I was just meeting with my coaching staff. So I rejected the rest and sat down to chat
Tévez also praised the greatness of Central throughout history and how he hopes to face the rest of the season with the squad he has at his disposal after receiving the team with a win, a draw and two losses in box 23 of the position table of the Argentine Professional Football League 2022:
Central is a sleeping giant that must be awakened. We have to take this club to another step, to compete. Yesterday at halftime it was rattling, it made me want to go in (laughs). But at one point, the player dies. Today he plays to be colder. Today I am a technician and I enjoy this profession. I trust these players a lot. I haven’t asked for any backup yet. For the Central fan, the last name Tevez is unknown, but at the same time things are said that are not true. A year ago I stopped playing and when a coach arrived and there was talk of reinforcements, I didn’t like it. I didn’t talk to anyone, I want to see the boys. I’m not going to say the positions out of respect for the players. we’ll see later
