Tevez cleared of refusal to play charge

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been cleared of refusing to play for the club in their Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, accoridng to Sky Sports.

The Argentinian has endured a turbulent season at Eastlands and was suspended by the club following an incident where he was alleged to have told Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini that he would not come off the bench as a substitute.

However, City officials, such as assistant managers David Platt and Brian Kidd, and players cannot verify the claims made by Mancini. The Italian manager had previously said that Tevez was ‘finished’ at Eastlands after the incident.

City have had to drop the charge relating to Tevez refusing to play. The only charge Tevez faces is refusing to warm up and the Argentinian is set to appeal the charge told to him in a internal club hearing today.

Tevez is expected to take no part in the Manchester derby this weekend and is rumoured to be a target for Corinthians in January, as he looks to leave Eastlands.
