There’s a great interview with Eggert Magnusson in The Guardian today. Read it HERE. In it he says, intreguingly, that he will be making a public statement on the Tevez affair on Thursday. If I were Terry Brown I’d be a worried man.
He is preparing himself for a final public statement on Tevez this Thursday. Until then, citing legal restrictions and the need “to make a fresh start”, he chooses instead to address the view of his manager, Alan Curbishley, that West Ham have become “public enemy No1”. Magnusson winces at the changed perception of a club once regarded as a noble academy of English football. “It does hurt me because the club has been dragged into this in a negative way by some of my colleagues. West Ham has been dragged down and I don’t think this is correct. This hurts me most, because what a few people decide should not be a burden to the whole club.
“The other sad thing is that Tevez got caught in the middle. He’s a great lad, so enthusiastic about football and success, and I would have loved to have seen him [again] in a West Ham shirt. I really tried to make that possible but, as a great player, he had ambitions to play in the Champions League.”
