Carlos Tevez will not appeal the two week fine handed to him for misconduct for refusing to warm up following Manchester City’s Champions League tie in Munich in September.
The Argentine midfielder will instead accept the fine, which had been reduced from a four-week fine after intervention from the PFA, after the club could not prove that he had refused to play.
The smaller fine represented the maximum punishment available for five breaches of contract that were brought up during the investigation into the events in Munich.
Tevez has twice previously asked for a transfer and a £40m move to Corinthians at the start of the season fell through.
City manager Roberto Mancini accused Tevez of refusing to play and said: “He refused to come on the pitch. If I have my way, he will be out. He’s finished with me.”
The feud escalated with threats of legal action for defamation of character from Tevez’ camp while Mancini recently offered an olive branch by suggesting that the striker might have a future with the club if he apologised to the fans, the team and the manager.
