Carlos Tevez suspended by Manchester City

Last updated at 08:03

Carlos Tevez has been suspended from playing by Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini for up to two weeks.

Mancini accuses the striker of refusing to play during City's Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Tevez was a substitute and was told to go on with 35 minutes left, but apparently he wouldn't budge!

But Tevez denies that he refused to play in the match, which City lost 2-0.

After the game Mancini said: "If I have my way, he will be out. He's finished with me."

But the striker has apologised to fans and said in a statement: "In Munich on Tuesday I had warmed up and was ready to play.

"This is not the right time to get into specific details as to why this did not happen. But I wish to state that I never refused to play."

He's had a number of bust-ups with his boss, and tried to leave before this season started.

It's thought City were asking for too much money for him and he couldn't find a new club.
