Carlos Tevez: Pleaded guilty to driving charges at Macclesfield Magistrates'

The 29-year-old, who appeared before Macclesfield Magistrates' Court and spoke through an interpreter, was also handed a fresh six-month driving ban and a £1,000 fine.

Tevez had initially been banned from the road for six months in January after admitting two counts of failing to provide information relating to incidents where his car was clocked speeding.

He was then stopped by police, after an anonymous tip-off, leaving a Cheshire golf club behind the wheel of a Porsche Cayenne on 7 March.

Passing sentence, chair of the bench Elizabeth Depares said: "You must realise you are a role model to thousands, if not millions, of fans but nobody is above the law. You should not have been driving.

"We have heard that you are sorry and it is now up to you to ensure you will not be brought back to court again."

Probation Service officer Mike Boliver told the bench Tevez had no previous convictions so rehabilitation was not appropriate and neither was a curfew order because of the travel involved with his job.

Mr Boliver said: "He was very clear when talking to me this has been a very salutary lesson. I think the seriousness and significance of this type of offence, I think the likelihood of this happening again is very, very slim.

"Mr Tevez would welcome a chance to put something back into the community. Clearly, he is fit for unpaid work."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
