........player exklusiv worn / issued boots

Carlos Tevez's Nike match worn boots. Tevez wore this special made to measure
boots during the Season 2009 with Manchester City. Both boots are personalized
with "FLOPY". Tévez was born Carlos Alberto Martínez in Ciudadela, Buenos Aires,
and raised in the
neighbourhood of Ejército de Los Andes, better known as
"Fuerte Apache".
It was from there that he got the nickname of "El Apache". His
parents changed his surname to his mother's during a conflict between his junior
club All Boys and Boca Juniors.
Tévez has a distinctive burn scar that runs down
his neck from his right ear to his chest. He was accidentally scalded with boiling
water as a child, which caused third-degree burns and kept him hospitalised in
intensive care for nearly two months. After joining Boca Juniors, Tévez refused an
offer from the club to have them cosmetically improved, saying that the scars
were a part of who he was in the past and who he is today.
