Tevez not planning Hammers exit
Carlos Tevez walks past West Ham boss Alan Pardew after being substituted
Tevez did not wait to see West Ham hang on to a win
Carlos Tevez has ruled out a return to Argentina and said he wants to stay at West Ham and prove himself in Europe.

Tevez stormed out of Upton Park after being substituted against Sheffield United on Saturday.

But he told an Argentine radio station: "I've been in Europe a few months. For my pride I will go on fighting despite not playing two or three matches.

"I'm a guy who always fights and wants to be on the field always - until the end," he added.

Tevez was reportedly made to wear a Brazil top in training for a week as punishment for his weekend walkout.

The Argentine striker has apologised for his fit of pique but Hammers boss Alan Pardew decided Tevez's team-mates should set his punishment.

Tevez, 22, was first asked to donate 1,000 to charity.


The squad also insisted Tevez, who has yet to score for the club, should wear the shirt of Argentina's rivals Brazil.

He added: "We have to take it with humour."

He later said sorry for his actions during training on Monday, acknowledging he did "very wrong" and that he did not mean to "disrespect" the players.

Tevez joined West Ham in a shock transfer from Brazilian club Corinthians last August but has struggled to command a regular first-team place.
