CARLOS TEVEZ has landed his first managerial job after being appointed at Argentine side Rosario Central.
The 38-year-old has moved quickly into becoming a head coach after only announcing his retirement from professional football earlier this month.
Sunsport recently reported how the former Manchester United and City striker was set to take charge of Rosario.
And that has now been confirmed by the club, with Tevez beating highly-rated Pablo Sanchez to the coveted role.
He has penned a one-year contract with the Estadio Gigante de Arroyito outfit having called time on his career after leaving Boca Juniors in 2021.
Taking to Twitter, Rosario have stated that Tevez's former Argentina team-mate Carlos Retegui will be part of his backroom staff.
