Tevez stripped of his wages

Have your say

MANCHESTER City have fined Carlos Tevez four weeks’ wages after upholding a charge of misconduct.

The club announced that a disciplinary panel had found the player guilty of five breaches of contract relating to his behaviour on the subs’ bench during last month’s Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich. The 27-year-old has also been given a written warning as to his future conduct and suspended for two weeks, although the latter punishment is deemed to have already been served.

Chief among those contractual breaches was the conclusion Tevez had not fulfilled “an obligation to participate in any matches in which the player is selected to play for the club when directed by a club official”.

He was also found not to have carried out “lawful instructions of any authorised official of the club”.
