Red Devil praises English game

Carlos Tevez has expressed his delight at playing in England and is 'touched' by his Manchester United following. The Argentina striker moved to the Red Devils in the summer after spending a year at Upton Park with West Ham. And the 23-year-old can identify with the passion which the fans at Old Trafford bring to every game "Playing in England is wonderful," he said in Champions, the official UEFA Champions League magazine. "You have the fans at hands' reach and they put you on a roll. "The football is spectacular - so much passion, pace, strength - I can identify with it. And considering what happened between our countries in the past, I feel proud to be treated with so much love in England. "With the fans chanting 'Argentina, Argentina' at every game, that is very touching."

Only a game

Tevez has started seven out of Manchester United's eight league games this campaign but has been frustrated at times with only one goal for the club. However the young striker remains philosophical about his approach to football. "It is good to remember that football is only a game, especially for kids starting out," he said. "A young footballer must have fun above everything else, I still do."
