MANCHESTER CITY CARLOS TEVEZ DENIES REFUSING TO PLAY

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has denied refusing to play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Tevez angered manager Roberto Mancini by seemingly not wanting to come on during the second half of the 2-0 loss.

Mancini claimed the Argentine would never play for him at City again, but Tevez has responded by saying he has "always given (his) best".

Tevez added: "There was some confusion on the bench and I believe my position may have been misunderstood."

He continued: "I would like to apologise to all Manchester City fans, with whom I have always had a strong relationship, for any misunderstanding that occurred in Munich.

"They understand that when I am on the pitch I have always given my best for the club. In Munich on Tuesday I had warmed up and was ready to play.

"This is not the right time to get into specific details as to why this did not happen. But I wish to state that I never refused to play.

"Going forward I am ready to play when required and to fulfil my obligations."

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association, commented: "There have been mixed messages for some time. They [Mancini and Tevez] are human beings and emotions run high, but clearly things aren't right.

"They've got to get round the table and sort it out, it's unsatisfactory at the moment. It's happened before with players. The two have contrasting temperaments.

"Sometimes positions get entrenched, and that seems to be the situation here."
