West Ham United chief Karren Brady doesn't blame fans for their tribute to Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez last weekend.

Brady wrote in her diary for The Sun: "I have to admit my view of him will always be shadowed by the enormous financial burden his transfer dumped on to my club.

"On the field it is very different and, of course, he is loved by our supporters. They will always regard him as an honorary bubble-blower. They showed their affection today in our goal-less draw with Man City.

"Tevez responds with the Hammers salute."
