Former West Ham striker was back training at the club's facilities ahead of Argentina's international visit.

West Ham cult hero Carlos Tevez made a much-welcome return to the club's facilities this Monday, as part of his international commitments.

The Juventus forward has been recalled to the Argentina international squad for the first time since 2011, reward for his impressive Serie A form this season.

Argentina are playing a friendly against Croatia this coming week at Upton Park, and Tevez was among the likes of Lionel Messi and Angel di Maria in going through their paces at West Ham's training ground.

Tevez played at West Ham during the 2006/07 season, and after a tough start, got to grips with the Premier League and was the catalyst and key figure in helping them avoid relegation.

He later signed for Manchester United where he won the Champions League a year later, followed by Manchester City before moving on to Juventus in 2013.
