MANCHESTER CITY STRIKER Carlos Tevez  has been sentenced after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified and driving without insurance at a court appearance on Wednesday.

The Argentina forward admitted the motoring offences at Macclesfield Magistrates’ Court, near Manchester in northwest England and has been hit with 250 hours of community service, a fresh six-month driving ban and a £1,000 fine.

Speaking in Spanish, the 29-year-old pleaded guilty through an interpreter.

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.
