Carlos Tevez Refuses To Play For Manchester City Vs. Bayern Munich; Roberto Mancini Says Citizens Career Is Done

Carlos Tevez of Manchester City looks on from the sidelines during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester City and Everton. Tevez refused to enter a UEFA Champions League match between City and Bayern Munich on September 27, 2011.

Carlos Tevez refused to play for Manchester City on Tuesday, and Roberto Mancini has revealed that he does not intend to let the Argentinian play for the team ever again.

With Manchester City trailing Bayern Munich in the second half of their UEFA Champions League match, City manager Roberto Mancini asked his star striker Carlos Tevez to come on as a substitute. Tevez refused to go on. Since the acquisition of Sergio Aguero, Tevez has been relegated to a bench role, and he's obviously a bit unhappy. Mancini confirmed that Tevez refused to play and expressed his displeasure with the situation. Then, he dropped this bombshell.

City were willing to field offers for Tevez during the summer, but did not receive a concrete offer that met their valuation of the player. They were in negotiations with Brazilian club Corinthians, one of Tevez's former clubs, but the deal ultimately fell through. Now, it seems as though the club will have to find some way to ship him out of town, regardless of whether or not they're able to recoup his value. Obviously, there will be more to this story in the coming days.
