MUNICH (AP) – Carlos Tevez may have played his last game for Manchester City after refusing to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, incurring the anger of manager Roberto Mancini.
Mancini wanted to bring the Argentina striker off the bench in the second half as City was trying to recover from 2-0 down in the Champions League game.
''If I have my way he will be out of the club,'' Mancini said, adding that he would discuss the situation with the club's Abu Dhabu owners. He said he would leave the decision on Tevez up to them.
Tevez pushed for a transfer during the offseason but no club met City's reported 50 million-pound ($79 million) asking price for the Argentina international.
Asked about Mancini's threat not to play him again, Tevez told Sky Sports through a translator: ''That's a decision for him to make.
''I've been a professional during all my time here. Last season I was the best scorer. I have said I wanted to leave for family reasons but I keep trying to do my best.''
Mancini said Tevez was ''probably'' upset that he was not brought on as the first substitute, when striker Edin Dzeko was withdrawn.
''I decide this, not Carlos,'' Mancini said at a news conference. ''If one player has a lot of (to) money play for Manchester City in the Champions League and he has this behavior, for me he can't play never.''
