Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has had his community service punishment for driving while disqualified replaced with a 3,000 fine.
The Argentinean forward’s lawyers returned the matter back to Macclesfield Magistrate Court on Wednesday so he could be re-sentenced after signing for Italian champions Juventus.
Tevez was banned from driving for six months on April 3, handed the 250 hours of unpaid community service after he admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance.
Tevez was unable to complete the unpaid work after penning down a deal worth £7.6m with Juventus.
The court heard that he had completed 28 hours of the other at Macclesfield Community Garden Centre where he helped adults with learning difficulties.
He has however been hit with the £5,000 maximum fine for the offence, less £2,000 for a prompt guilty fee and the 28 hours unpaid work he had completed.
