Tevez wins Argentina golf tournament

Manchester City's AWOL striker Carlos Tevez has spent his time absconding in Argentina winning golf tournaments, according to reports in the local media.

• Milan considering Tevez move
• Inter's Zanetti talks up Tevez deal

Tevez, who returned to his homeland without City's permission after being charged with misconduct following his refusal to warm-up against Bayern Munich in September, won a Buenos Aires Grand Prix for professionals and amateurs, partnering golfers Sebastian Fernandez and Andres Romero.

The £200,000-per-week striker, who was fined two-weeks' wages prior to his escape to Argentina, is refusing to return to Manchester despite both his club and representatives being locked in talks to find a solution to the standoff.

But while the furore surrounding Tevez continues to rumble on, the player himself has been happily playing golf.

Fernandez, one of Tevez's partners in Sunday's Grand Prix said: "He did not say anything about his problems with his club, but I was struck by the peace he had ... He plays golf very well."

City manager Roberto Mancini had offered Tevez a way back into the team if he apologised to both players and staff for his behaviour, but the volatile striker refused the opportunity and was made to train alone before he returned to Argentina.
