Carlos Tevez injures himself playing in prison match

Former Argentina international Carlos Tevez has reportedly suffered a calf injury while playing a pickup game in a maximum security prison. His club, Boca Juniors, appear less than pleased with their star striker.

Argentinian club Boca Juniors were reportedly "furious" when they heard how their forward, Carlos Tevez, injured his calf.

According to Argentinian outlet Clarin, Tevez, 34, injured his calf while playing a 20-minute, five-a-side football game at Bouwer's maximum security prison in Cordoba. The former Manchester United man was reportedly visiting his half-brother Juan Alberto Martinez, who is serving a 16-year sentence for armed robbery.
