Tevez fined four weeks' wages
Manchester City have upheld a misconduct charge against Carlos Tevez and the striker is to be fined four weeks' wages.
City held an internal investigation into Tevez's actions after manager Roberto Mancini accused him of refusing to enter the field as a substitute during the 2-0 defeat at Bayern Munich at the end of September.
Following a disciplinary hearing, Tevez was found guilty of five breaches of his contract and has been handed a fine, which must be ratified by the Professional Footballers' Association, as well as issued with a written warning as to his future conduct. He was also issued with a two-week suspension, though that is deemed to have been served already.
The club listed the breaches of conduct as follows: "1. An obligation to participate in any matches in which the player is selected to play for the club when directed by a club official.
"2. An obligation to undertake such other duties and to participate in such other activities as are consistent with the performance of the player's duties and as are reasonably required of him.
"3. An obligation to comply with and act in accordance with all lawful instructions of any authorised official of the club.
"4. An obligation to observe the statutes and regulations of FIFA and UEFA, the FA Rules, the League Rules, the Code of Practice and the club rules, including but not limited to breach of Rule E3(1) of the FA Rules (obligation on the player all times to act in the best interests of the game and not act in any manner which is improper or which brings the game into disrepute).
"5. An obligation not to knowingly or recklessly do anything or omit to do anything which is likely to bring the club or the game of football into disrepute or cause the player or the club to be in breach of the Rules (as defined in the contract) or cause damage to the club."
Tevez has the right to appeal to the club's board within 14 days of the decision.
