Carlos Tevez could face further disciplinary action from Manchester City after he returned to Argentina without the club’s permission on Tuesday.

The striker was expected to attend a training session at the Eastland club’s Carrington complex on Wednesday morning, despite him being pictured arriving in Argentina the day before.

“He’s gone to see his family,” the player’s spokesman, Paul McCarthy told Sky Sports. “We’ve said all along that Carlos is aware of the situation in terms of getting back to his fitness. I can’t really say much more until he’s back in the country.”

Tevez was due to remain in Manchester to continue his personal fitness training programme, despite most of City’s players being away on international duty.

The news of the no-show comes after it was reported the 27-year-old would not appeal against the two-week fine and suspension served to him for allegedly refusing to warm up during City’s Champions League clash at Bayern Munich in September.
