Carlos Tevez Injures Himself in a Prison Match Whilst Visiting His Brother

Carlos Tevez Injures Himself in a Prison Match Whilst Visiting His Brother

Carlos Tevez is set to miss four Boca Juniors matches after injuring himself in a prison match he was taking part in whilst visiting his brother.

The former Manchester City and United striker is currently enjoying a third spell with his boyhood club after his lucrative move to China was cut short earlier this year.

The 34-year-old is still considered a crucial player for Boca at the moment, but they’ll need to do without him for several weeks following a bizarre set of circumstances.

According to the Sun, Tevez managed to damage his calf muscles whilst visiting his half-brother Juan Alberto Martinez at Bouwer’s maximum security prison in Cordoba, who is behind bars for his part in an armed robbery.

Sadly, there’s no photos or videos of the incident, but Tevez is said to have joined in with Juan and other inmates for an impromptu kick-about.

We wonder how his employers feel about his latest sick-note, eh?

What do you think?
