CARLOS TEVEZ, MAN City’s controversy-prone striker, was involved in more trouble last night.
Roberto Mancini claims the player refused to come on as a substitute in their Champions League tie with Bayern Munich last night, while the player says it was merely a “misunderstanding” and that “I never refused to play”.
So assuming Mancini’s allegation is true, what should Man City do?
Tevez is believed to make in the region of £200,000 a week, and thus, refusing to play him would constitute a serious waste of money.
Moreover, he was arguably City’s best player last year, and in the right frame of mind, he could potentially prove integral to their Premier League challenge.
On the other hand, the incident is the latest in a series of controversies that the Argentinian has become embroiled in. Would it ultimately be detrimental to the team’s cause if he was selected ahead of players who have consistently displayed a better attitude than him?
Should they leave him to rot in the reserves until the January transfer window, or even cancel his contract, given that he has seemingly refused to do what is paid for?
