Manchester City defender Micah Richards admits Carlos Tevez was wrong to ignore manager Roberto Mancini's order to go on as a substitute in the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.

Tevez refused to come off the bench in Germany on Tuesday and is adamant the Argentina forward will never play for City again.
Tevez denies the allegation and insists he misunderstood what Mancini was saying. But the former Manchester United star, who has been keen to leave Eastlands for several months, is currently suspended. Man City looked pretty much on the job despite the controversy, thrashing Blackburn 4-0 in their EPL clash on Saturday.
England defender Richards has become the first City player to criticise Tevez for his actions. "Carlos's reaction in Munich was wrong. It was something he shouldn't have done," Richards told The People. "There was always going to be a bit of tension because Carlos is a top player and hasn't been getting in the team," he added.
