REVEALED: What Tevez and teammates said on Man City bench

It's been revealed what Carlos Tevez said while on Manchester City's bench during the clash with Bayern Munich.

Tevez has been suspended for two weeks by City for refusing an instruction to warm-up by manager Roberto Mancini.

The Mail on Sunday had a Spanish lip reader analyse the controversial incident.

Tevez, Aleksandar Kolarov and Pablo Zabaleta were sitting next to each other and this is what they said, though it's not always clear to whom.

ZABALETA (to TEVEZ): Well go on then, go on.

KOLAROV (to ZABALETA): He's OK, it's just, you know.

TEVEZ (approached by member of City staff): No, leave me alone, l've said no ... [expletive]
