Soccer: Tevez knock 'nothing serious' (ANSA) - Turin, April 4 - Juventus forward Carlos Tevez on Friday reassured fans that he was not badly hurt after he came off during the Turin side's 1-0 win at Lyon in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

"I'm fine!," Tevez said on his Twitter account. "I came off because I had a pain in a thigh muscle. Nothing serious, luckily".

Tevez is Serie A's top scorer this season with 18 goals. His contribution since arriving at Juve from Manchester City in the close season has been a big factor in the Turin giants' drive to win their third consecutive Serie A title.

Juve are eight points ahead of second-placed AS Roma with seven games to go.
