Man City coach says Tevez is finished

6:55 am on 29 September 2011

Manchester City's manager Roberto Mancini says striker Carlos Tevez is finished, while he remains in charge of the club, after refusing to take the field as a substitute during yesterday's 2-nil Champions League loss at Bayern Munich.

Tevez, who has found controversy follow him from club to club, sought to placate City fans whom he has already angered over the past year with his open desire to leave the club.

He denied he'd refused to take the field, saying he's ready to play on for the club.

But if Mancini sticks to his guns, Tevez's words will fall on deaf ears at a club whose patience he has tested several times.
