Carlos Tevez Suffers Muscle Tear In Ill-Advised Prison 5-A-Side

Postado Março 29, 2018

Tevez re-joined his boyhood club Boca Juniors in January after spending time with Shanghai Shenhua in China.

There, he allegedly joined in on a small game with some of the inmates and during their kickabout, Tevez is said to have torn his soleus, a muscle in the calf.

However, the eccentric forward season has been disrupted by a month after picking up a calf injury during a five-a-side game in a prison in Cordoba - where he visited his brother, Beto Tevez, who is now serving a 16-year sentence for his involvement in an armed robbery. Apparently, the 20-minute game was "nothing friendly" and "there was no mercy for the expensive legs of Carlitos".

As he successfully attempted to force a move away from Dortmund in the January transfer-window, Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was roundly criticised when instead of paying some attention to a match being played by the first-team, he indulged in a five-a-side game with friends.

It was during some practice with the inmates that Tevez suffered his injury. The former Manchester United man was reportedly visiting his half-brother Juan Alberto Martinez, who is serving a 16-year sentence for armed robbery.

Tevez, 34, initially lied about how he suffered the knock, but Boca officials are now "enraged" after learning the truth, the report added.

The forward earned a staggering £850k per week while playing in the Chinese Super league, where he described his time there as like being on "holiday".
