No more Tevez?

Filed: Friday, 27th April 2007

Carlos Tevez will not play for West Ham again if the Premier League choose to invoke one of the key rulings from today's hearing.

The Premier League can effectively tear up Tevez's contract as a result of West Ham United being found guilty of breaking league transfer rules - meaning that he could miss all of the three remaning fixtures this term.

Today's PL ruling declared that "the registration of Carlos Tevez can be terminated by the FAPL, and ... that West Ham pay the costs of these proceedings."

The key word in that statement is highlighted - however Premier League spokesman Dan Johnson seemed to suggest that the clause would be invoked:

"If West Ham want to play Carlos Tevez again this season, they will have to re-sign him from the third parties, including a company called Mediasport who own his registration," he said.

"He'll then have to be re-registered with the Premier League."

Johnson's words were in stark contrast to those of United Chairman Eggert Magnusson, who, when asked about Tevez's situation upon leaving the hearing, said that the Argentinian WOULD play for West Ham at Wigan tomorrow.

The news means that Tevez would effectively be a free agent and therefore available to sign for any club.

''I still can't see how we got fined, surely the Premier League has something to do with this? How can they let us have a player and play him when everything has to go through them? I'm just totally baffled to be honest!''

''Fingers crossed this doesn't happen as the player, the team, the manager and the current board of directors had no idea of this. If this happens it would be devastating and completely unfair.''

''I hope this turns out to be a good thing and not a bad thing for the fans, ie it could now force the club's hand into signing Tevez outright and permanently as the fans all want. However Kia Joorabchian could refuse to sell him to us, I hope and pray to God that Kia will sell him. Back to Mr Magnusson at West Ham, will he and his backer be willing to pay all that money for Carlitos before our survival is certain? ''

''The fine is unbelievably big - then they want to try and tell us we can not play him unless we re-sign him?! I don't see how they can enforce that rule as we haev been punished for the deal already! I think the Premier League are trying to force us into a grovelling apology; don't give it to them and play Tevez at Wigan. I fancy him to destroy Wigan on his own!''

''If this is true and it dose happen this is a crime in itself. That lad aint done nothing wrong and since he has been at West Ham he has been honest and loyal in every way. I have not belived in a player so much since Di Canio left us. If we don't get to see Tevez in claret and blue again then THAT is the real crime.''
