EXCLUSIVE: DS reacts to ‘Tevez return’ story

carlos_tevez_1121330cCarlos Tevez is NOT going to make a West Ham United return.
Irons co chairman David Sullivan has reacted quickly to newspaper speculation this morning (Sun)  that the 31 year old is set for a Hammers return.
The Mail claims that the club want him as their marquee signing as they bid to sell season tickets for their new home believing too it would encourage other high quality players to join the club.
Currently with Juventus, the former Iron would be a hugely popular signing but the chances of it happening are next to zero according to Sullivan.
Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh the club chief explained that there were problems on two fronts which made the move all but impossible.
He said: “We’d love to sign him, but he’s indicated as recently as the Argentina friendly at Upton Park he’s not interested in coming.

“Also, with the wage cap and Financial  Fair Play rules I doubt we could afford him either.”

  1. If we get rid of AC and KN we could aford him and with AC playing only a handful of games a season and the other not playing any it would be a good move,
    But why would we want a gifted adventurous attacking player when he would be sent out on loan not fitting our criteria.
