The apparent refusal of Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez to take the field in Tuesday's 2-0 Champions League loss at Bayern Munich has generated an angry response from fans and premier league football managers.
City's manager Roberto Mancini says the Argentine is finished, while he remains in charge of the club, after refusing to go on as a substitute.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says Tevez' behavior was disrespectful to the club and the sport.
Tevez has denied the claim and says he had warmed up and was ready to play.
Tevez has had an uneasy truce with City since angling for a move away from the club this year, citing family reasons, and he's played only one full match this season.
