West Ham chairman Eggert Magnusson worries that the club´s reputation has been unfairly damaged by the Carlos Tevez transfer saga.

The club escaped with a £5.5million fine from the Premier League in April for breaching rules on third-party ownership in relation to Tevez and fellow Argentinian Javier Mascherano, and Tevez then scored the goals which helped keep the Hammers in the top flight at Sheffield United´s expense.

He told The Guardian: "It does hurt me because the club has been dragged into this in a negative way by some of my colleagues. West Ham has been dragged down and I don´t think this is correct. This hurts me most, because what a few people decide should not be a burden to the whole club."
