Tevez questions West Ham future

Tevez has been in brilliant form of late
West Ham forward Carlos Tevez has admitted he does not know where he will be next season.

The Argentina international, 23, could be playing his final game for the relegation-threatened Hammers when they travel to Manchester United on Sunday.

"I have stopped learning English as I don't know where I am going to end up next season," he told the Times.

The Hammers will stay up if they get at least a point at Manchester United, or if Wigan fail to beat Sheffield United.

In my opinion, it's the most difficult competition in the world

Speculation continues as to where he will play next season with clubs in England and overseas supposedly interested.

And should the Hammers stay up they could face legal action from Charlton, Sheffield United and Wigan over the signing of Tevez.

The Hammers were fined a record 5.5m on Friday for breaching Premier League rules over the signings of Tevez and fellow Argentine Javier Mascherano, who has since joined Liverpool.

After a tough start to life in England, Tevez has inspired a run of form that has seen them win six of their last eight matches.

He added: "It was hard to settle. The language is an issue - and I will learn English if I stay in this league.


"The football here is different compared to Brazil or Argentina.

"In my opinion, it's the most difficult competition in the world. That may be why so few people make it over here.

"Every Saturday you get kicked and you end up going home with marks all over your body. They hit you hard, they hit you everywhere - Premiership defenders are very strong individuals.

"And the referees allow a lot. They don't interrupt the game as much as they do elsewhere. But you know what? I don't mind all that, it makes me a better player, a stronger player."
