Manchester City's Carlos Tevez leaves Carrington Training Ground, Carrington.
Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez could be in more trouble after he missed training without permission yesterday in order to return to Argentina.
Following a scheduled day off, Tevez was expected at his Premier league club's Carrington training ground yesterday, but failed to appear, according to a source close to City. "He has gone to visit his family," Tevez's PR advisor Paul McCarthy said.
The Argentine was charged with misconduct after refusing to warm up as a substitute in a Champions League match against Bayern Munich in September.
He was fined four weeks' wages which was later halved following an intervention by the Professional Footballers Association.
"He has accepted the fine, we felt it was time to draw a line under the situation and move on," McCarthy said. "Carlos has always admitted he failed to resume warming up, not that he failed to enter the field of play and that was underlined by the PFA's judgement."
Mancini wants Tevez to apologize if he wanted to play for City again.
