Tevez didn't refuse to play, says advisor

According to his advisor, Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez did not refuse to come on as a substitute during his side's Champions League football defeat at Bayern Munich.

Tevez is currently serving a two-week suspension while City chiefs carry out an investigation into manager Roberto Mancini's allegation that the Argentine star ignored his instruction to go on during last week's 2-nil loss in Germany.

During a post-match television interview in Munich, Tevez appeared to admit his guilt when he said he didn't feel right to play.

But his advisor claims the translation of the questions put to Tevez were not accurate.
