Magnusson Comes Out Fighting

In an almost aggressive official statement on the West Ham official website Eggert Magnusson has expressed his desire to hang on to Carlos Tevez,

"There will be a particular focus on Carlos Tevez and I want him to stay. I suspect a lot will be written about his future but the starting point is that he is a West Ham player, registered with and contracted to the club with three years remaining on a 4 year contract. Whatever happens next we will act to protect the best interests of West Ham United FC."

The statement seems to suggest that West Ham, having torn up the player's previous contract, now consider him their player. At the least it seems to send a message to the player's agents that if he is sold on for the tens of millions being talked about then West Ham will want their share.

I've got to say my love for Mr Magnusson grows a little stronger with every passing day.
