The action comes after the Argentina international reportedly said he would not come off the bench during City’s 2-0 Champions League defeat at the Allianz Arena.
The 27-year-old later denied manager Roberto Mancini’s claims that refused to play and blamed the situation on a “misunderstanding”.
A club statement read: “Manchester City can confirm that striker Carlos TÃ©vez has been suspended until further notice for a maximum period of two weeks.
“The player’s suspension is pending a full review into his alleged conduct during Tuesday eveningâ€™s 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich.
“The player will not be considered for selection or take part in training whilst the review is under way.”
Mancini was adamant that TÃ©vez had refused to play after Tuesday’s clash in Munich. “He refused to come on the pitch,” said the City boss after the game.
“What I said to Carlos is between me, him and the team [but] I am really disappointed because it is Carlos. I decide the changes.
“If I have my way he will be out. He’s finished with me. If we want to improve as a team Carlos can’t play with us. With me, he is finished.”
But TÃ©vez later insisted that the incident was the result of a misunderstanding. “I would like to apologise to the Manchester City supporters, with whom I have always had a strong relationship, for any misunderstanding that occurred in Munich,â€ said TÃ©vez in a statement on Wednesday.
â€œThey understand that when Iâ€™m on the pitch I have always given my best for the club,â€ said TÃ©vez. â€œIn Munich on Tuesday I had warmed up and I was ready to play.
â€œThis is not the right time to go into specific details as to why this did not happen but I wish to state I never refused to play. There was some confusion on the bench and I believe my position was misunderstood.â€
