The father of Juventus forward Carlos Tevez, Juan Alberto Cabral, has been released after being kidnapped for more than eight hours in the city of Morón, in Buenos Aires province. The player later thanked those who had sent their support during the ordeal.

"He is just fine," the family lawyer Gustavo Galasso said to reporters.

Cabral was set free around 1.30 p.m. today, after a ransom was paid, according to NA news agency.

Tévez used his official twitter account to express his gratitude to those whom he said gave "the support they always do."

"My father is ok, safe and healthy," the forward told followers, while extending his gratitude to Buenos Aires governor Daniel Scioli, City mayor Mauricio Macri and Security secretary Sergio Berni. Tévez also sent a message to close friend Scioli and Macri, pleading for co-operation from the pair.

"Let them work together and fight to take this country forwards," he expressed, adding that "we should not be pulling for one political party, here we have to fight as one."

Cabral was intercepted around 7 a.m. today, while he was driving his car near Morón. After the abduction, the criminals called Cabral’s daughter in law in Buenos Aires city for an initial ransom request, but minutes later they asked for a much larger sum.
