Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been fined four weeks' wages and has received a written warning regarding his future behaviour after a disciplinary hearing upheld a charge of improper conduct against the Argentine.
The 27-year-old has also been suspended for two weeks, which has been deemed to have been served, as a consequence of the unsavoury row which followed City's UEFA Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
City boss Roberto Mancini first accused Tevez of refusing to play as a substitute at the Allianz Arena, but an internal investigation, which took place while the player served an initial suspension, then deemed the forward had only refused to resume his warm-up.
After the inquiry and an associated hearing, which took place last Friday, a disciplinary panel has upheld the charge of misconduct and five separate breaches of contract formed the basis of the decision.
Tevez, who has twice requested a transfer away from City and was not involved Sunday's famous derby humiliation of former club Manchester United, now has a fortnight to decide whether he will appeal the decision to the board, while the fine must be ratified by the Professional Footballers Association.
Breach of contract
A statement on the club's official website read: "Manchester City football club can confirm that a disciplinary hearing has been concluded in relation to a charge of misconduct by Carlos Tevez.
"The charge relates to events during the Champions League match against Bayern Munich on 27th September 2011.
"Following a detailed investigation and associated hearing, a disciplinary panel has upheld the charge of misconduct. Five separate breaches of contract formed the basis of the decision by the panel.
"As a result Carlos Tevez has been fined four weeks' wages and has been suspended for a period of two weeks (deemed to have already been served). He has received a written warning as to his future conduct.
"Carlos Tevez has been informed in writing of the decision of the disciplinary panel, and the Club has written to the Professional Footballers Association for ratification of the fine."
