TOP 7 PLAYERS WHO CAME FROM NOTHING

7 – Carlos Tevez

They say that hard time create tough men. Well, truer words have never been spoken. Argentine forward Carlos Tevez was born in Fuerte Apache, a neighborhood near Buenos Aires. The area was infamous for its high crime rate, violence and drugs. Tevez had a difficult childhood, but he never gave up his dream of becoming a professional footballer. He played for Boca Juniors and Corinthians before making a move to the Premier League in 2006. The rest, as they say, is history. Carlos Tevez recently signed for Shanghai Shenhua, where he will earn an eye-watering £615,000 per week.
