Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will miss Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Wolves with a thigh injury.
Tevez suffered a dead leg during the loss to Arsenal last Sunday and was forced off early in the second half.
Manager Roberto Mancini had hoped the Argentinian would be fit to feature at Molineux but the game will come too soon.
Yet City do not consider the injury to be serious and have said they expect the 26-year-old to be back in training next week.
The club also confirmed Tevez has been given permission to travel to Argentina to visit his family but he will report back on Monday.
