Tevez plans to sue Mancini

The Mirror reports that Carlos Tevez may sue boss Roberto Mancini for defamation of character.

Tevez has recently been fined 4 weeks wages, amounting to an incredible £1 million after an investigation by City, after being found guilty of five breaches of contract for refusing to come on as a substitute.

Tevez’s action would be based on the claims that Mancini made that the Argentine refused to play in last months Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

Mancini made the claim in two separate post match press conferences but nobody on the bench that night has backed the City bosses claims completely.

The City hierarchy feel that Tevez’s actions on the 27th of September were premeditated, after they informed him of the loss of a £6m bonus for handing in a previous transfer request.

The final straw came for the Argentinian three days before the Bayern clash when he was effectively made fourth choice striker for City’s premier league game against Everton.

Tevez is likely to appeal both his ban and fine with the club. If he is unsuccessful he may take his case the the Premier League.
