Tevez slapped with driving ban

Tevez slapped with driving ban

Manchester City and Srgentina striker Carlos Tevez has been disqualified from driving less than a fortnight after his luxury car was removed from the road by police.

On November 15 Tevez's Porsche Panamera was impounded in Manchester when he failed produce a full UK driving licence. Two days later Tevez, 28, mimicked driving a vehicle after he scored twice in his team's Premier League win at home to Aston Villa.

Now Lancaster magistrates have imposed an interim ban on him for a separate matter in which he failed to provide information when his car was clocked speeding in Morecambe.

It is understood his vehicle was caught breaking the speed limit in the town on March 28 when he played for City's reserves against Morecambe Reserves.

His solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told the court his client accepted he did not provide identification - which carries six penalty points - and that under the totting up procedure he was now liable for disqualification.

He asked the magistrates to impose an interim disqualification and adjourn sentencing so that the "no licence case" from Manchester could be dealt with at the same time.
