Juan Roman Riquelme admits he's urging Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez to return to Boca Juniors.

Tevez began his pro career with Boca before being sold to Corinthians.

"I think anyone who is fan of Boca should put in the money to bring him back," said Riquelme. "Or the club has to make an effort to bring Carlitos back to Boca.

"He told me about his situation and he said he did not want stay there. Every time I talk to Tevez I tell him to return to Boca."
