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Carlos Tevez has been cleared to start the season with Juventus as planned after having his Community Service Order rescinded at Macclesfield Magistrates Court.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

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
