Tevez appeals against Man City fine

Carlos Tevez has appealed against a fine received from Manchester City.

Carlos Tevez has appealed against a fine received from Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says City imposed the fine after finding Tevez guilty of gross misconduct on December 22. Tevez subsequently appealed against the punishment but that was thrown out on January 7 after a hearing involving two City directors, Marty Edelman and Mohamed al-Mazrouei.

The Premier League have confirmed they will deal with Tevez's appeal 'at the earliest available opportunity'.

"The Premier League received correspondence from Carlos Tevez last night giving notice of Mr Tevez's intention to appeal against a disciplinary sanction imposed on him by his club, Manchester City," a statement read.

"Premier League rules allow for players to appeal disciplinary decisions under Section K and the Premier League Board will consider this request at the earliest available opportunity."
