LONDON: Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will accept a charge of misconduct stemming from his actions during the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, British media reported on Tuesday.

City last month fined Tevez four weeks’ wages — later reduced to two — for five breaches of contract relating to his behaviour during the club’s 2-0 defeat at Bayern on September 27.

Tevez had been accused of refusing to appear as a substitute but the player denied those claims, insisting he had only declined a request to warm-up on the grounds that he had already done so.

Manager Roberto Mancini vowed Tevez was “finished” at the club but recent reports in England and Italy have suggested the Argentinean may continue to play at Eastlands if he apologises to his teammates.

Meanwgile a BBC report said Tevez will not contest his misconduct charge.

According to the BBC, it is understood that Tevez believes a move away from the club in the January transfer window is now the best option.

A club investigation had found the 27-year-old guilty of refusing to play in the match.

The striker has not played for the club since starting in the 2-0 Carling Cup win over Birmingham in September. (ANI)
