Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini continues to freeze out Carlos Tevez.

The Daily Express says Mancini has still not come face-to-face with Tevez since he returned to the club a week ago after three months' unofficial exile in his native Argentina.

Tevez has been ordered to train in the afternoons while Mancini works with the first-team squad in the mornings.

Yesterday, Mancini had left City's Carrington training ground by the time Tevez arrived at 3pm.

Mancini is insisting that Tevez apologises to him and the other players - as well as improve his fitness - before he is brought back into the fold.
