The amount Manchester City player Carlos Tevez earns in a month.

Last Updated: 09 Oct 2013

His weekly salary may be around six times more than the amount the average person earns in a year, but with money comes power (apparently).

Carlos Tevez has left Man City fans reeling after he refused to play in the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich earlier this week. And even the club itself isn’t playing ball – Man City last night suspended the Argentine for two weeks pending an investigation into his conduct. Tevez, however, insists he was the victim of ‘misunderstanding.’ Seems pretty clear-cut to us. Would our bosses be forgiving if we decided not to show up to work?
