Tevez: Joined Juventus from Manchester City last month

Carlos Tevez has been cleared to start the season with Juventus as planned after having his Community Service Order rescinded at Macclesfield Magistrates Court.

The striker still had to complete the majority of his 250 hours' of unpaid work, imposed as punishment for a string of driving offences earlier this year.

However, the terms have now changed, meaning Tevez will pay a fine instead of fulfilling the order.

District Judge Bridget Knight accepted there were circumstances beyond Tevez's control in his inability to fulfil the terms of his Order: "This is only a technical breach. It is not, I repeat not, a case of a footballer thumbing his nose at a court order."

It is thought Tevez's legal team argued that as the South American was sold by Manchester City, he was not responsible in law for his inability to comply with the order.

Tevez said: "I would like to thank the court for its understanding. I appreciate their help and assistance in this case.

"I would also like to thank my legal team, especially Gwyn Lewis at Burton Copeland and all my advisors who have helped me throughout this case."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
