The 38-year-old former Argentina international, who announced he was hanging up his boots on 4 June, will take over the club on a one-year contract.

Rosario are mired in the lower half of of Argentina’s 28-team Primera Division in 22nd place.

Tevez’s playing career included successful stints in the Premier League with both Manchester clubs, as well as a spell with Juventus in Italy before his third and final playing contract with Boca Juniors.

At Manchester United he won two Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League, scoring in the penalty shoot-out against Chelsea.

A year later he made the controversial decision to cross Manchester to join United’s biggest rivals, helping City to win the 2011-12 Premier League, their first English league title since 1968.
