Tevez disqualified from driving



Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was disqualified from driving on Monday after failing to provide the required documentation when his car was caught speeding.

Tevez's vehicle broke the speed limit in Morecambe, northwest England, on March 28 when he played for City's reserve team against Morecambe reserves.

The Argentine's solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told magistrates in Lancaster that Tevez accepted he did not provide identification – which carries six penalty points – and that under the totting up procedure he was now liable for disqualification.

"My instructions are though he was not the driver on that occasion I am not going to argue against a ban on grounds of exceptional hardship," Lewis said.

Lewis asked the magistrates to impose an interim disqualification and adjourn sentencing so that the "no licence case" from Manchester could be dealt with at the same time.

"He (Tevez) has been told that he will not be able to drive this morning," the solicitor added.

Tevez, who did not attend the hearing, will discover the length of the suspension on December 20.

The ban is the latest motoring misdemeanor for the former Manchester United and West Ham star, who had his Porsche Panamera impounded in Manchester on November 15 when he could not produce a full UK driving licence.

Tevez, 28, mimicked driving a vehicle after that incident as he celebrated scoring twice in City's Premier League win at home to Aston Villa.
