Pardew's World Cup Diary
Here is what West Ham manager wrote about Tevez in his World Cup Diary for The Independent (24th June),
"I saw in less than 10 minutes that Tevez can be a star for the next 10 years. He will be a top, top player. Tevez has an assurance about his ability. He's got good agility and looks like a striker who has every tool. He's a decent size too. He's more explosive than Lionel Messi. He's really a Maradona-type player. He has more goals in him than Lionel Messi and works higher up the pitch. Tevez will always be at the sharp end and I like that."
