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

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

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.

Amid the possibility that he may well injure himself and hamper his own value in the process, former Manchester United and Manchester City man Carlos Tevez has suffered such a fate in a less friendly sort of kick-about.

The 34-year-old Argentine striker is currently in his third spell with Boca Juniors, and, according to reports from Argentina, is set to miss a few weeks action after being injured in a game of football ... in prison.

Having visited his half-brother in a maximum security prison where he currently resides, Tevez is said to have torn his soleus muscle during a game of football behind bars.

While there is no photographic evidence of the incident, Clarin have reported that Boca are furious with Tevez for this incredible lack of judgement on his own behalf.

Recently returning to Argentina after a self-confessed "seven month holiday" in the Chinese Super League, the suggestion of his former Shenhua chairman Wu Xiaohui that signing Tevez had been a mistake may well be appreciated by his Boca employers.

Having started his third season with the club in a positive fashion, he is not set to be sidelined for the immediate future. Drawing their opening tie in this year's Copa Libertadores group stages, Tevez could now miss two crucial fixtures set to take place in the coming weeks.
