Carlos Tevez suspended by City

Manchester City have suspended Carlos Tevez for two weeks as they look into the player’s conduct, after he allegedly refused to play against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

The Argentina international striker has had minimal time on the pitch this season after handing a transfer request into the Etihad Stadium outfit over the summer, and was on the bench against the Bundesliga side at the Allianz Arena in the Champions League.

With the Premier League side trailing 2-0, Roberto Mancini looked to bring the South American on to chase a goal, but the controversial forward refused to enter the field of play.

Tevez has since denied the claims, but the club have indicated that the matter will be investigated further.

“Manchester City can confirm that striker Carlos Tevez has been suspended until further notice for a maximum period of two weeks,” a statement on the side’s official website reads

“The player’s suspension is pending a full review into his alleged conduct during Tuesday evening’s 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich. The player will not be considered for selection or take part in training whilst the review is under way,” it concluded.

Mancini claimed that the refusal marked the end of Tevez’s time at the club, with a January transfer now looking increasingly likely.
