LONDON (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Manchester City has accepted Carlos Tevez’s insistence that he did not refuse to enter as a substitute during a Champions League game.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the team investigation is continuing. Tevez is attending a disciplinary hearing Friday, cited for a lesser infraction of refusing to resume warming up.

City manager Roberto Mancini said Tevez refused to come off the bench during last month’s 2-0 loss at Bayern Munich.

The striker was suspended for two weeks during a City investigation. He blamed a misunderstanding, deeming it unnecessary to warm up after saying he had already done so.
