Tevez returns for City reserves

6:08 am on 29 February 2012

Carlos Tevez has made a low-key return to action for his English football club Manchester City, completing 45 minutes of a reserve match against Preston North End at the Premier League club's Carrington training ground.

The Argentine striker had not played for City since falling out with the club following his refusal to warm up during the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich in September.

He returned to Argentina without permission and spent three months in his homeland before coming back to England two weeks ago and apologising for his behaviour.

Preston won the match 3-1.
