Angry fans demand apology from Tevez

RIO DE JANEIRO, July 24 (Reuters) - Fans of Brazilian champions Corinthians have told forward Carlos Tevez to apologise for gesturing to the crowd to be quiet during a game at the weekend.

A leader of the notorious supporters' group Gavioes da Fiel (Hawks of the Faithful) warned that the Argentine international could face an orchestrated campaign against him if he does not say sorry.

'If he thinks he's above us, let's see how Tevez faces an organised campaign on our part,' Gavioes vice-president Wildner Rocha told the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper.

'Nobody can stand constant pressure,' said Rocha, nicknamed the Little Flea. 'They (the players) are not prepared for this and we are.'

Tevez scored the equaliser as Corinthians, bottom of the table after a disastrous slump in form, drew 2-2 at home to Fortaleza.

He celebrated by running to the Corinthians fans and putting his finger over his lips telling them to be quiet. They had jeered the team after Fortaleza took a 2-1 lead.

'To begin with, we want him to talk to the fans and concentrate on the team,' said Wildner, adding that more dramatic measures would only be taken later.

Tevez joined Corinthians for a South American record $18 million in Dec. 2004, shortly after the club had signed a partnership deal with London-based Media Sports Investments (MSI).
