Carlos Tevez has emphasised his commitment to Manchester City by saying: "I don't think anyone loves the shirt more than me."

The Argentina striker heads into the derby with his former club Manchester United on Saturday, aiming to improve on his impressive 20-goal tally for the season.

Tevez scored a first-half hat-trick in the 3-0 victory against West Brom on Saturday on his 27th birthday.

The skipper claims he is now content after a spell where he seemed to anxious to leave Eastlands, handing in a transfer request which was later withdrawn.


"I never walked out of the club or wanted to do any harm to the club, not for anything in the world, " he told the club website.

"I do not think there is anyone who loves the shirt more than me. I show that in every game I play. I give everything I have got.

"I do not speak very often to the press. I just have it in my head, I do my talking out there on the field, which is the most important thing.

"People might want to have a pop at me but I am completely at ease here. I want to do my best for the City shirt."
