West Ham’s Carlos Tevez has apologised for walking out of Upton Park after his substitution at the weekend.
The Argentine striker was unhappy at being substituted during the 1-0 win against Sheffield United, and he left the ground immediately after the game.
“I know I did very wrong in going and I have made it clear to the manager and my team-mates that I in no way meant to disrespect them,” said the 22-year-old.
“I would just like to say that I left the ground in anger on Saturday,” added Tevez. “It was a spur-of-the-moment decision, which I regretted almost straight away.”
Manager Alan Pardew has accepted the apology and will allow the rest of the team to determine his punishment.
“Carlos reported as normal for training on Monday morning and immediately offered his apologies to the players and staff,” said Pardew.
“He knows he made the incorrect decision in leaving and has decided he would like the players to vote on how much his fine should be and that it should go to the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
“The players will be given the chance to offer their opinions Tuesday morning.”
