Tevez explains celebration

Carlos Tevez last night revealed the secret of his bizarre dummy celebration.
Tevez, 23, pledged to put a dummy in his mouth if he scored against Birmingham on New Year's Day to show he was missing his wife and young daughter Florencia, who jetted back to Argentina the day before.
The Manchester United striker admitted: "I had my celebration prepared because my family flew home to Buenos Aires on New Year's Eve and I promised them something special if I scored. I took a dummy from my daughter to show her and my wife that I am missing them.
"I miss them a lot at this time of year because normally I'd have a break and be on a beach somewhere!
