Tevez faces City misconduct hearing

MANCHESTER CITY outcast Carlos Tevez is set to face will face disciplinary proceedings over his conduct during last month’s Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.

The club conducted an internal investigation following accusations from manager Roberto Mancini that the Argentina international refused to take to the field as a second-half substitute, and as a result the 27-year-old may face further sanction, following the two-week ban he has already served.

“The club has been conducting an investigation into the events of 27 September at the Allianz Arena,” said a club statement.

“The club has now reached a stage in its investigation where it has concluded that there is a case for Carlos Tevez to answer of alleged breaches of contract. Accordingly, the club has informed him that he will face disciplinary proceedings and the hearing will be convened shortly.”

Tevez’s initial punishment expires today and he is expected to train with the rest of the squad this morning for the first time since the episode which has tainted City’s bright start to the season.

Mancini had claimed the striker was “finished” at the club while he remained at the helm.
