Former Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez has once again stirred controversy surrounding his position at the club.
It has emerged that the Argentine is considering suing his manager, Roberto Mancini, for defamation following his recent punishment.
Tevez was fined four weeks’ worth of wages – amounting to near £1 million – after being found guilty of 5 breaches of conduct during the Champions League Game against Bayern Munich, as well as being found guilty of refusing to play for his club.
However, in a remarkable twist, Tevez is contesting the allegations and it has been suggested that Mancini’s comments in a post match interview may amount to defamation.
The valuable striker has been experiencing trouble at the club and has not played in quite a while, therefore, it would seem extremely likely that Tevez will be seeking a new club in the January transfer window.
Also Corinthians Renew Tevez Interest
Corinthians appear to have renewed their interest in Carlos Tevez following a breakdown of a proposed transfer in July.
The figure is now estimated to be around half of the original £40 million offer, with Corinthians taking advantage of the further deterioration of relations between Roberto Mancini and the Argentinian international.
Nevertheless, Man City have ruled out such a bargain price, stating that “the club’s formal position is that no offer for Carlos will be considered unless it reflects true market value.”
