Gloomy day greets Tevez's return

Carlos Tevez arrived at Manchester City for training on a gloomy day, but exchanged an embrace with a security guard before going into the complex.

Carlos Tevez arrived back at Manchester City's training ground Monday with his future still uncertain.

The Argentina striker returned to the Carrington training ground as a passenger in a black Hummer, and exchanged an embrace with a security guard before going into the complex yesterday morning.

Tevez has made no secret of the fact that he wants a move. In June, Tevez told Argentinian television that he would not return to Manchester ever - "not even for a vacation" - and complained about the weather.

The skies were suitably grey yesterday and there was a chill in the air to welcome him back.

Tevez had told the Telefe television channel: "There's nothing to do in Manchester. There's two restaurants and everything's small. It rains all the time. You can't go anywhere.

"There comes a moment where you say 'Where am I going to go with my family?' and you begin to feel bad. Of course, one trains, plays, does things, and when the family or friends come, one feels bad, and you can't take them to the movies because they don't understand anything.

"I will not return to Manchester, not for a vacation, not anything."

Tevez trained - in the rain - for only around 20 minutes before the short session was brought to an end. Wearing a grey hooded sweater with "Tevez 32" on the front, the striker took part in some sprints. He left the training ground shortly afterwards.
