Boca Juniors furious after star striker Carlos Tevez tears muscle in prison

Argentina international forward Carlos Tevez has enjoyed a glittering career but often shrouded in controversy but his latest injury picked up in prison has said to anger his current club Boca Juniors.
Tevez, 34, returned to his hometown club for a third spell in January this year after a lucrative season in the Chinese Super League where he earned a staggering £29m (R484m) a year at Shanghai Shenhua.
However, the eccentric forward season has been disrupted by a month after picking up a calf injury during a five-a-side game in a prison in Cordoba - where he visited his brother, Beto Tevez, who is currently serving a 16-year sentence for his involvement in an armed robbery.
Argentina publication Clarin claims the former Manchester City striker went down with the muscle injury after an 'intense 20-minute kickaround.'
The veteran striker remains one of the most recognised personalities in South American football, winning over 20 major titles, including three Premier League winners medals - during a career that dates back to 2001.
