Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez plans to play in a testimonial on the weekend in Buenos Aries.

The AWOL former Etihad skipper, already £9.5million out of pocket from club fines, has been told he must return now the January transfer window is closed.

But Tevez insists he wants to play in Martin Palermo's testimonial.

Tevez said: "I wouldn't miss this celebration for anything."
