Tevez: I feel at home alongside formidable Pirlo
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez says he feels "at home" within the Italian champion's squad, particularly alongside Andrea Pirlo.

Tevez, who enjoyed a mercurial career in the English Premier League prior to his move to Serie A from Manchester City, has settled into life in Italy in some style, having scored 19 goals to date in all competitions this season.

The Argentine forward admits he is relishing his time with Antonio Conte and the "formidable" Juventus stars in Turin.

"I feel at home in Italy, at Juve. These guys are formidable champions, Andrea Pirlo above all," he told Tuttosport.

"Conte transmits a winning spirit: he always demands the best, and rightly so. You can see that we are a team on and off the field."

The 30-year-old became Serie A's leading goalscorer this season with his double in the win over Parma on Wednesday, but he has stressed he is far more concerned with Juve defending their title than claiming the capocannoniere prize.

"It [being top scorer] doesn't matter to me. The important thing is the victory for the team," he added.
