Ham­mer hor­ror as Tevez re­turns to haunt the Blades

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

SOME­ONE at Sky Sports (a Sheffield Wed­nes­day fan?) ap­pears to have a warped sense of hu­mour – they’ve stuck a mas­sive Car­los Tevez poster up out­side Sheffield United!

The bill­board is one of those pro­duced by Sky to celebrate their 23 years of cov­er­age of the Premier League, but it’s not likely that Blades fan will see the funny side.

Back in 2007, Tevez scored the win­ner for West Ham against Manch­ester United on the last day of the sea­son, con­demn- ing Sheffield United to rel­e­ga­tion. The gi­ant bill­board ap­pears to show him cel­e­brat­ing that goal.

Tevez was part-owned by West Ham and busi­ness­man Kia Joorabchian's Media Sports In­vest­ment (MSI) com­pany, an agree­ment which breached Premier League rules. Yet the Ham­mers weren’t docked points.

In 2009, an out of court set­tle­ment was agreed which saw West Ham pay the Blades £20m in com­pen­sa­tion for the rel­e­ga­tion.

HAV­ING A LAUGH? The Tevez bill­board in all its glory
