Carlos Tevez has responded to critics who have laid the blame for West Ham United’s predicament on his arrival at Upton Park.
Tevez joined the struggling Premiership outfit last summer along with fellow Argentinian Javier Mascherano – who has since moved to Liverpool – and finds himself accused of unsettling the dressing room after West Ham’s successful season last yearn.
However, Tevez has responded defiatnly, claiming he is just being made a scapegoat.
He told the Daily Mirror: “The people who have blamed me and Mascherano for everything do not understand football.
“These problems have never been caused by us either because of the transfer or the problems on the pitch.
“Javier is a big player and I cannot say about myself, but we are not to blame.
“Anyone who says that is wrong.
“I care for this club and have only ever done everything I can as a player and as a person to help West Ham this season.”
