Tevez determined to prove himself in Europe

West Ham striker Carlos Tevez is determined to prove himself in Europe and has ruled out a move back to Argentina.

The 22-year-old striker has struggled since his move from Brazilian side Corinthians before the transfer window closed for the winter and has been linked with a move away from Upton Park.

Despite showing promise against Chelsea 11 days ago, he was punished for his reaction to being substituted against Sheffield United at the weekend.

Reports linked him with a move back to Boca Juniors, where he started his career, but Tevez told Argentinian station Radio Mitre: 'I've been here in Europe for just three or four months. For my pride, I will go on fighting, despite not playing two or three matches.

'I'm a guy who always fights and wants to be on the field always - until the end.'

Tevez was ordered to wear a Brazil shirt in training by his West Ham team-mates as punishment for his reaction to being substituted at the weekend.

He added: 'We have to take it with humour.'

Meanwhile, Sir Trevor Brooking believes West Ham boss Alan Pardew may trim his squad as the club look to the future following their recent takeover.

Icelandic businessman Eggert Magnusson is the head of a consortium which has had an offer for the club accepted, and the Hammers have since been linked with players such as Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

However, Upton Park great Brooking believes cutting numbers in the squad is also important as West Ham attempt to climb further away from the relegation zone.

'Everyone knows where they are, there will be talk about players but you just have to deal with that and the team has got to get a bit more consistency,' said Brooking, who is now the Football Association's director of football development.

'There has been improvement in recent weeks and that comes from results and confidence. The issue is that there is quite a big squad now, so that is something Alan will have to deal with in the next couple of months.'

Magnusson pipped a rival consortium fronted by Kia Joorabchian, who helped bring Javier Mascherano and Tevez to the club.

The Argentina pair have only had a limited impact since their arrival, sparking speculation about their future.

While players such as Wright-Phillips may help West Ham build on last season's achievements in their first season back in the top flight, Brooking has emphasised the importance of bringing homegrown players through.

'He (Magnusson) has said all the right things and, with all the things that have gone on for the last few weeks, most fans were grateful that the consortium he was involved in emerged as the winners because there was a lot of uncertainty,' Brooking added on the club's official website whufc.com.

'He seems to be a person who understands about the traditions.

'We have a tradition and it is important to develop our own players. The fans are always loyal here and if there is an opportunity for investment then great, but they'd like it to be still very much where you have homegrown talent as well.

'The club have always had a good reputation and anyone who didn't quite understand that would have found it difficult but the early signs are good and everyone has now got to take a step back and let them get settled in.'
