West Ham’s Carlos Tevez has said he is sorry for his huge hissy fit that saw him stropping out of Upton Park after he was substituted at the weekend.
The Argentine striker was keen to make amends for reacting angrily during the 1-0 win against Sheffield United.
He said: "I know I did very wrong in going and I have made it clear to the manager and my team-mates that I in no way meant to disrespect them."
Alan Pardew has accepted the apology (soft get!) and decided to let the rest of the West Ham players decide how much the Argentine striker should cough up in fines.
Hammers boss Alan Pardew has accepted the apology and will allow the
rest of the team to decide on the size of his fine.
"Carlos reported as normal for training on Monday morning and
immediately offered his apologies to the players and staff," said
"He knows he made the incorrect decision in leaving and has decided he
would like the players to vote on how much his fine should be and that
it should go to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. The players will be
given the chance to offer their opinions Tuesday morning."
Tevez is still to score in the Premiership since arriving with fellow
Argentine Javier Mascherano on transfer deadline day in August. Their
futures are now shrouded in doubt following Eggert Magnusson’s
successful takeover of the club.
