City reduce Tevez fine
Manchester City have confirmed Carlos Tevez will be fined only two weeks' wages for misconduct following a ruling from the Professional Footballers' Association.
City intended to fine the Argentinian four weeks' wages after ruling he was guilty of refusing to play against Bayern Munich last month in the UEFA Champions League.
However, the PFA have refused to sanction a fine above the maximum two weeks' wages the club are permitted to impose without the permission of the union.
City's statement read: "Manchester City Football Club has received notification from the Players Union (PFA) that it will not support a four-week fine as a penalty for the actions of misconduct of Carlos Tevez.
"The club acknowledges that the players' union is the sole organisation empowered with granting the ability for clubs to levy fines greater than the two weeks provided for in player contracts."
