Manchester City have stated on Friday that striker Carlos Tevez has yet to get in touch after going AWOL.

Tevez failed to report for training on Wednesday as expected having flown home to Argentina on Monday.

City have now given the 27-year-old until Monday to report back but as yet have not heard from the player.

"We have asked Carlos to get in touch (on Friday) but have not yet heard from him."

No comment

Representatives for Tevez had no comment to make on the matter on Friday.

The latest Tevez controversy comes after it emerged on Tuesday that he would not be appealing against a club fine of two weeks' wages - believed to be around £400,000 - for five breaches of contract.

City found Tevez guilty of misconduct after his non-involvement in the UEFA Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich on September 27.

Tuesday had been a scheduled day off for Tevez but, as he had not been selected for international duty, was then expected at training on Wednesday.
