After pictures of striker Lys Mousset’s wrecked £ 300,000 orange Lamborghini appeared online, Sheffield United says they are investigating.
Police in South Yorkshire has reported that two men in their 20s were arrested in the early hours of Monday morning on suspicion of drink driving after the supercar collided with parked vehicles.
After police interrogation, both men were released under investigation and it is not yet clear if there were any injuries.
In their loss against Crystal Palace on Saturday, Mousset, 24, started for Premier League bottom club Sheffield United, but he has failed to score a single goal all season.
The club said in a statement released on Monday:’ Sheffield United officials are aware of photographs circulating on social media and are actively conducting internal inquiries.’
Mousset, who receives £ 25,000 a week, signed a contract worth £ 10 million in the summer of 2019 for Sheffield United from Bournemouth.
After netting six league goals, he was their top scorer last season, but this term has failed to find the net in six league appearances.
South Yorkshire Police reported in a statement:’ Police were called this morning at about 12.10 am following reports of a crash on Abbeydale Road South, Sheffield.
An orange Lamborghini has been confirmed to have been involved in a collision with several parked vehicles.
Two men were arrested in their 20s on suspicion of being over the prescribed level. Both were released under indictment because inquiries are ongoing.’
The region of Sheffield is currently subject to Tier 3 government limits, enabling people to meet in public outdoor areas in groups of up to six.
The crash took place on Abbeydale Road South, less than two miles from Bramall Lane Stadium, a club.
