Tevez in Turin after kidnap

Carlos Tevez has returned to Turin after his father was freed by kidnappers in Argentina, but won’t play Cesena-Juventus.

The striker had reportedly been rushing to an airport for the first flight to Buenos Aires when news emerged his father had been kidnapped this morning.

However, Segundo Tevez (and not the previously reported name Juan Carlos Cabral) is now with local police – it’s not clear whether a ransom was paid.

Juventus have left Tevez out of their squad for tomorrow’s friendly in Cesena, citing “family reasons.”

However, the forward is staying in Turin after all.

Gigi Buffon is also absent from the team at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi.

Juventus squad for Cesena: 77 Audero, 34 Rubinho, 30 Storari; 5 Ogbonna, 19 Bonucci, 4 Caceres, 3 Chiellini, 26 Lichtsteiner, 16 Motta, 43 Sorensen; 22 Asamoah, 33 Isla, 8 Marchisio, 39 Marrone, 20 Padoin, 7 Pepe, 37 Pereyra, 21 Pirlo, 24 Spinazzola, 33 Vitale; 38 Buenacasa, 11 Coman, 36 Donis, 12 Giovinco, 14 Llorente
