London:

Carlos Tevez has appealed to the Premier League against a six-week fine imposed by Manchester City for his continued absence from the club.

City found Tevez guilty on Dec. 22 of gross misconduct for travelling without permission to his native Argentina in November, where he remains.

The Premier League leaders handed Tevez a fine of 1.2 million pounds ($1.9 million), which the player appealed on Jan. 7. That appeal was thrown out on Jan. 11 by City directors Marty Edelman and Mohamed al-Mazrouei following a hearing.

Tevez hasn't played for City since refusing to warm up during a Champions League game against Bayern Munich in September.
