MANCHESTER CITY STRIKER Carlos Tevez may be set for a prison sentence, according to reports in The Guardian.

The paper reports that the Argentinean was arrested for ‘allegedly driving while disqualified’.

Tevez was banned from driving for six months in January. He previously plead guilty on two counts of failing to clarify incidents when his car was clocked for speeding. His defence, at the time, centred around language barrier confusion.

The footballer’s legal team told Manchester Magistrates’ Court that their client was confused over the word ‘constabulary’ at the heading of official police correspondence.

A statement from Cheshire police, to the Guardian, said: “At 5.13pm on Thursday, 7 March police arrested a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge on the A538 in Macclesfield on suspicion of driving while disqualified.

“He has since been released on police bail.”
