Tevez to do community service

03 April 2013, 16:38

Macclesfield - Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was sentenced to perform 250 hours of community service after pleading guilty Wednesday to two motoring offences.

The Argentina forward was also handed another six-month driving ban and a 1 000 ($1 500, 1 175 euro) fine at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court, near Manchester in northwest England.

Speaking in Spanish, the 29-year-old pleaded guilty through an interpreter to one count each of driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

The court heard that the City forward had not yet obtained a British driving licence, partly because he struggled to understand the theory exam conducted in English.

The Argentinian received a six-month driving ban at Manchester Magistrates' Court in January.

But he was stopped at the wheel as he left a golf club on March 7, following an anonymous tip-off to the police.

The court heard he told the officer who stopped him: "I only live down the road. Two minutes."

Tevez has been in hot form for Manchester City of late, scoring seven goals in his last six appearances for the English Premier League champions.

The former Corinthians, West Ham and Manchester United striker has scored 16 goals in 37 matches for City so far this season, but his club look almost certain to lose their Premier League title to United.
