Tevez promises to celebrate goals against United

Carlos Tevez has rounded on Manchester United fans and warned there will be no repeat of Monday night's restrained goal celebrations should he ever score against them. Tevez, whose goals helped West Ham stay up during his season-long stint at Upton Park in 2006-2007, celebrated in almost apologetic fashion when scoring the first goal in Manchester City's 3-1 win over the Hammers on Monday night.

The Argentine's actions were in stark contrast to team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor, who faces an FA improper conduct charge on Thursday following his allegedly inflammatory celebrations in the recent win over Arsenal.

"I have decided not to celebrate my goals out of respect to West Ham," Tevez told the Daily Mail. "They were my first club in England and, in my heart, part of me will always be a Hammer.

"The professional part of me was really pleased with my first City goals at home but, personally, I would have preferred to beat another club. In the derby against United I had also decided not to celebrate our goals but, after the bad treatment I received from the supporters that day, I have changed my stance on that.

Tevez was roundly booed during the Manchester derby in response to comments about the club's failure to sign him after a two-year loan with Sir Alex Ferguson signalled out for particular criticism. "If I score in the next derby then I am sure that I will celebrate," said the irked Argentine.
