Tevez back at Man City after 3 months absence

Published:

MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Carlos Tevez is back at Manchester City, three months after taking unauthorized leave from the Premier League leaders to return to his native Argentina.

The striker flew in on Tuesday in a bid to end the long-running feud and resume his City career. He arrived at City's training ground late in the afternoon.

Having previously tried to leave City, Tevez's battle with the club intensified in September when he refused to warm up in a Champions League match at Bayern Munich.

But after failing to seal a move away from City in the January transfer window, Tevez will first have to undergo fitness tests before trying to settle his differences with the club.

Tevez has lost about $15 million in fines or lost earnings in the past year.
