Carlos Tevez says he still holds former club West Ham close to his heart.

The 28-year-old spent a season at Upton Park in 2006-2007, helping the club narrowly avoid relegation, before moving the Manchester United and later Manchester City.

“I’ll always remember West Ham and their fans with real love and respect,” the Argentina striker wrote in The Sun.

“It’s where I began in English football and it’s why I’ll always have so much affection for the club.

“That’s why I made the sign of the crossed hammers at Upton Park last week.

“If I’d scored against them, I definitely wouldn’t have celebrated.

“I’m so glad they’re back in the Premier League because I missed playing there last season and I missed the fans.”
