West Ham United hit out at Kia Joorabchian for his claims and declared that they are happy to accept FIFA's ruling in the Tevez case.
Joorabchian had blasted the Hammers for their misleading statements and false promises - but the club reject these claims as the confusion in the Tevez case continue to reign.
'We will not be drawn into this form of public mudslinging but these latest statements cannot go unanswered,' read a statement posted on the West Ham website. 'Mr Joorabchian entered into agreements with the previous regime at West Ham at a time in which he was attempting to take over the club.
'Those arrangements, since terminated by West Ham, led the club into serious disciplinary difficulties for which the club has paid a heavy price.'
'It is absolutely clear that the only contract relating to Carlos Tevez recognised by West Ham and the Premier League is the player's four-year contract which runs until June 2010.'
They still stick to their version and they have little choice: they are not in the position of risking the Premier League's wrath by ignoring all the warnings about eventual punishments in the case that the deal is not done directly with them.
However, the most important part is that they are willing to reach a compromise - or I think so, for their statement declared that they are happy to accept FIFA's ruling now that the international body has got the official enquiry.
'The time has come to settle this matter in a way which will allow everyone concerned to move on.'
Could not agree more.
