Tevez's Juventus move will not break community service rules, insist lawyers

The Argentine, who made the switch from Manchester City to Turin on Wednesday, has yet to complete the 250 hours of community service he was given in April
Juventus new boy Carlos Tevez's lawyers insists “no rules have been broken” following his transfer from Manchester City to Turin, despite having outstanding community service to serve in the United Kingdom.

The 29-year-old finalised a deal to join the Serie A champions on Wednesday after spending four seasons at Manchester City, for a fee of around €12 million.

But the Argentina international still has a significant portion of the 250 hours of community service he received in April to carry out, and will be unable to complete his sentence before pre-season starts with Juventus in two weeks' time.

But Tevez's lawyer, Gwyn Lewis, insists the former West Ham and Manchester United striker has done nothing wrong and will endeavour to follow the appropriate procedures.

“No rules or regulations have been broken in relation to Carlos Tevez's community service order,” a statement from his legal team reads.

“We are acting on behalf of Mr Tevez to make sure he abides by all the rules.”

Tevez was banned from driving for six months, fined £1,000 and given 250 hours' community service in April after admitting to driving while disqualified and without insurance.
