Tevez unaware of betting scam

Last updated : 27 June 2011 By Team Talk

A Greek court is examining evidence that City's clash with Aris in February was the target of a betting scam.

Prosecutors are reported to have presented extracts of a phone conversation in which one of the Greek team's players claims he would approach Tevez to help them pull off the sting.

Aris midfielder Kostas Mendrinos is heard suggesting he could ask his team mate - former City player Nery Castillo - to persuade Tevez to let the Greek side kick off.

But a spokesman for Tevez denied any knowledge of, or involvement in, the alleged scam.

"It is impossible," said the spokesman.

"Carlos has never heard such a thing and no one ever approached him."

Despite being a former City player, Castillo and Tevez never actually played together.
