Tevez reveals Curbishley silence
Carlos Tevez in action for West Ham
Tevez is a popular figure with West Ham
West Ham's Argentine misfit Carlos Tevez admits he rarely speaks to manager Alan Curbishley.

Tevez, 22, who has yet to score a goal in the Premiership as the Hammers struggle for survival, said: "The manager speaks to you very little.

"They put the set-pieces on the blackboard and you have go up to it and read it. It is a colder way of doing things. But I do feel relaxed here.

"My wish is to get the team out of this situation we're in."

Tevez has been linked with a move away from Upton Park, with fellow Argentina international Javier Mascherano - who also arrived in August - already gone and awaiting confirmation of a move to Liverpool.

But he has proved a popular figure with fans who admire his refusal to complain about his plight.

He said: "I feel comfortable at the club. The people adore me, chant my name and treat me well.

"I am not thinking about leaving. I don't want a situation to happen here like the ones that happened to me at Boca Juniors and Corinthians, where, for reasons beyond football, I had to leave."
