Man City angry at PFA after Tevez fine cut to two weeks

Manchester City are furious with the Professional Footballers’ Association chief executive Gordon Taylor after the union claimed there was no justification to fine Carlos Tevez four weeks wages.

The Telegraph reports that the PFA have taken action over the fine, because City did not have enough evidence to prove that Tevez refused to play during the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich. City have called the PFA’s decision a conflict of interest and will now have to fine Tevez just two weeks wages as opposed to their original plans of four weeks.

A City statement read: ‘Manchester City is disappointed by the apparent PFA conflict of interest evident in this process. Today’s PFA decision is a departure from the club’s understanding of that dialogue’.

The PFA refused to sanction the proposed four weeks wage fine and have angered City, who were considering a consultation of their legal team. Tevez is rumoured to be interested in suing City boss Roberto Mancini for defamation and has until November 8th to inform the club of his intentions against appealing the internal charges he faces at City.
