Manchester City have announced that Carlos Tevez will be suspended for up to two weeks while they carry out a review of the incidents that occurred during the Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Tevez had earlier issued a statement the day after the match claiming that the alleged clash with manager Roberto Mancini which resulted in the Italian later declaring that the striker was “finished” had been a misunderstanding over warming up and that he had not intended to refuse to play.
Tevez apologised to City fans for the events but after a summer of transfer drama the Argentine striker remained at the Etihad Stadium following the late collapse of a proposed £40m move to Corinthians.
The full Manchester City statement follows:
“Manchester City can confirm that striker Carlos Tevez has been suspended until further notice for a maximum period of two weeks.
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.”
