Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez denied on Wednesday he had refused to come on as a substitute in their Champions League match against Bayern Munich and said he is ready to play on for the club.

Manager Roberto Mancini told reporters that the Argentine had ignored his instruction to warm up early in the second half of Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat in Germany and that Tevez was “finished” while he was manager.

“There was some confusion on the bench and I believe my position may have been misunderstood,” he said in a statement. “I would like to apologise to all the fans for any misunderstanding.” Tevez’s words may fall on deaf ears at a club whose patience he has tested several times.
