MANCHESTER City ace Carlos Tevez has been given 250 hours of community service, a six-month driving ban and a £1000 fine for driving offences.
The £200,000-a-week striker was taken to court after being caught driving without insurance and with no licence in March.
Tevez … pleaded guilty
Magistrate Elizabeth Depares told him: ‘You must realise you are a role model for thousands, if not millions, of fans. Nobody is above the law, and you should not have been driving.
‘We have heard you are sorry. It is now up to you to ensure you will not be brought before the court again.’
He was driving his white Porsche Cayenne when he was stopped on March 7 by cops as he left a golf club after an anonymous tip-off.
This was despite being banned from driving for six months in January at Manchester Magistrates’ Court.
He pleaded guilty this morning in his native Spanish with the aid of an interpreter as he stood in the dock at Macclesfield Magistrates’ Court.
Argentinian Tevez, 29, who gave his full name as Carlos Alberto Tevez, has not yet got a UK driving licence – partly because he struggled with the English theory test.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to furnish information relating to incidents in which his car was clocked speeding in January.
Tevez did not attend the that hearing but was represented by his solicitor who told the court the footballer failed to respond to letters because he did not recognise the word ‘constabulary’.
