Tevez explains West Ham transfer
Carlos Tevez
Tevez's move to Upton Park stunned the football world
Carlos Tevez has revealed he chose West Ham ahead of bigger Premiership clubs because they offered him the best chance of regular football.

Tevez and Argentina team-mate Javier Mascherano joined from Brazilian side Corinthians despite being linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

"West Ham is a team where I can get a rhythm and see what English football is all about," said the 22-year-old.

"It's going to do me a lot of good to play in this league."

Tevez said he was not looking any further than West Ham despite speculation that this was just a stepping stone to bigger things in England or Europe.

"First I want to do well for West Ham. I'm not concerned about playing in a big club. I just want to play."
