Tevez confirms Sullivan’s ‘no happy returns’


tevezThere has been so much rubbish written about a Carlos Tevez West Ham return that it hardly seems worth mentioning it again.

But given that the man himself has today given a final thumbs down to the suggestion we will – for the final time – report what we told you back on March 15.

ClaretandHugh reported David Sullivan as saying: 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.”

Now Tevez has again confirmed exactly that in the Italian Press where he told newspaper La Republica, said: “My whole family and I are Boca Juniors ans and I want to play in that shirt once again.

“I don’t know when, but I will return home. I’ve been in Europe for many years and I need my family – I miss my father, my mother and my brother.

“I can’t complain as everyone has treated me well, but my mentality is Argentine and my desire is to go back to Buenos Aires.

“Of course people would prefer if the Tevez family all moved to Turin. I like it here, but my life is over there. I’m a family man, as we say.

    We need to move on as a club no Tevez and no BFS

    Shame. Could see him working well with AC next season providing the flickons for Andy to bury 🙂

    I respect Tevez, he’s a wonderful player he always gives everything. He’s a fighter and s class player, but unfortunately he’s too old for a new project. Money for the new manager and young quality players.

    He was a great player for us but that time has passed. I’m actually a little disappointed that DS even raised the subject with him. I thought the policy of signing players past their sell by date was a thing of the past. That policy only leads to wasted money, injuries and mediocrity on the field.

    Like Carroll,valencia and Sakho how old are they ?
    And if you are under 28 you won’t get picked by he who knows better,
    What gets me is today we see the next Messi owing probably to Arsenal from the same club as Zarate ( where were our scouts ) it’s not Bob a job week is it ?
    We will not attract players like Tevez without a class A manager like Rafa and we can’t afford either,
    Stop dreaming we need to find hidden talent like Sakho or in the championship like Cresswell,
    Let’s stop dreaming and get back to the most important thing the removal of the Golden one
