Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been disqualified from driving less than a fortnight after his luxury car was removed from the road by police.

Tevez, 28, mimicked driving a vehicle after he scored twice in his team's Premier League win at home to Aston Villa on November 17.

Two days earlier his Porsche Panamera was impounded in Manchester as he could not produce a full UK driving licence.

Lancaster magistrates imposed an interim ban on him for a separate matter in which he failed to provide information when his car was clocked speeding in Morecambe.

It is understood his vehicle was caught breaking the speed limit in the town on March 28 when he played for City's reserves against Morecambe Reserves.

His solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told the court his client accepted he did not provide identification - which carries six penalty points - and that under the totting up procedure he was now liable for disqualification.

Mr Lewis said: "My instructions are though he was not the driver on that occasion I am not going to argue against a ban on grounds of exceptional hardship."

He asked the magistrates to impose an interim disqualification and adjourn sentencing so that the "no licence case" from Manchester could be dealt with at the same time.

"He (Tevez) has been told that he will not be able to drive this morning," added the solicitor.

The magistrates agreed and listed the matter in Lancaster for December 20 when the length of the suspension will be set. The Argentinian did not attend the hearing.
