The former West Ham player scored Manchester City’s opening goal of the game before turning and calmly apologising to the travelling fans.
Tevez became a Hammers hero for scoring the winner at Old Trafford in the game that kept the Hammers in the Premiership in 2007 and has always admitted that he enjoyed his time at Upton Park and will always have a place in his heart for West Ham.
Gianfranco Zola praised Tevez following his actions, “Great players like him are also gentlemen and he showed that so my appreciation to him. Not only for what he did after the celebration but what he did in the rest of the game. I think he had been outstanding for them.
