Manchester City's big night in the Champions League ended with failure on the pitch and problems off it for manager Roberto Mancini as Bayern Munich maintained their remarkable record over English teams with a 2-0 victory.

Although City initially appeared to be in good shape against the German giants, two Mario Gomez goals in eight first-half minutes turned the tie on its head.

Then, when Mancini introduced Nigel de Jong for Edin Dzeko 10 minutes after the re-start, the Bosnian seemed to exchange words with his manager. This drew Carlos Tevez into the row, with suggestions that the Argentina star, left stewing on the bench on Saturday, had refused to warm-up, which then led to an exchange with compatriot Pablo Zabaleta.
