Carlos Tevez failed to report for training with Manchester City yesterday morning, the club confirmed.
Tevez, who it emerged yesterday would not be appealing against City's ruling that he was guilty of misconduct in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich on September 27, is understood to have flown out to his native Argentina on Monday night.

Tuesday was a scheduled day off for the 27-year-old, but he was due at City's Carrington training ground this morning and has not shown up, meaning he could now be in further trouble with the club.
A spokesman for City told Press Association Sport they were not yet able to say what punishment may follow for the striker, and little is being revealed about when he is likely to return from his trip.
Tevez's representative Paul McCarthy this morning told Sky Sports News: "He's gone to see his family. 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."
