Carlos Tevez is to give evidence over allegations that he refused to play against Bayern Munich.

Carlos Tevez will give evidence today (Monday) over allegations that he refused to come on as a substitute during Manchester City's 2-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich last week.

The incident sparked outrage from manager Roberto Mancini and widespread criticism from the media, resulting in a two-week ban for the Argentina international.

Tevez will be accompanied by a translator when he faces questions at City's internal investigation, and it is believed that the striker will claim that the incident was a misunderstanding.

His fellow substitutes and club staff will also give evidence.

Reports this week suggested that the club are prepared to fine Tevez up to £1.5m and extend his suspension by a month.
