Manchester City fans turn against Carlos Tevez after the striker's controversial actions during the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

Manchester City fans have turned against Carlos Tevez after the striker caused a furore by refusing to come on as a substitute during the side’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

The controversial forward has been suspended for a maximum period of two weeks by the North West club.

While the 27-year-old has faced criticism from a host of Premier League managers, it seems that City supporters are unwilling to forgive the frontman.

"When I was speaking to people in the airport after the game, everybody wanted Tevez out of the club,” The Telegraph quotes Manchester City Supporters’ Club chairman Kevin Parker as saying.

"They never want him to wear a City shirt again. His relationship with the fans is in tatters. I can’t see how this can be repaired. Nobody is going to believe his story that he didn’t refuse to come on.

"We just want to move on without Carlos Tevez. No single person is bigger than any football club and certainly not Carlos Tevez."

The former Manchester United striker released a statement yesterday claiming that he had not refused to play and apologised to all City supporters.
