Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez has been banned from the road for speeding after a reserve team tie – while his £125,000 Porsche Panamera remains in a police impound.

The Blues’ former captain was disqualified from driving after his speedy exit from Morecambe Reserves’ after his return to the club following a six-month exile in Argentina.

The 28-year-old striker was unable to produce a full UK licence when caught speeding on March 28 – on November 17 his car was seized by officers after again failing to produce the correct documentation.

Tevez’s solicitor Gwyn Lewis told Lancashire magistrates court that his client accepted the ban for not being able to produce the correct documentation.

The judge imposed an interim banning order while the case was postponed until December 20 when the length of sentence will be imposed.

Tevez arrived in the UK six years ago when he joined London club West Ham before sealing his move to Manchester United one year later.

After two years at Old Trafford he switched to Eastlands and helped City to clinch the FA Cup and Premier League title in their new era of success.
