Argentine striker Carlos Tevez Manchester City is away at least two weeks from returning to the first team, reported the Italian manager Roberto Mancini …

On Tuesday, Tevez played one half for the reserve team. It was the first appearance of 28-year old striker in City jersey since he refused to go to warm up during performances at Bayern Munich in the Champions League in September last year.

– I think he will need it for at least two weeks. It is essential that during this period he plays two or three games for the reserves, to feel playing on the playground. This is for him something of a preparatory period before the season. It is not easy to come back after three months. Currently Tevez is not ready for first team, but maybe in two weeks and could be – said Mancini.
