Manchester United star Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been banned from driving for six months and fined more than £30,000.
Wan-Bissaka, 24, admitted to driving while disqualified and without insurance after he was stopped by police officers while driving his £170,000 Lamborghini Urus in Stockport, Greater Manchester, on June 23.
Ahead of a scheduled trial, he also pleaded guilty to failing to provide driver details for two speeding offences in Bradford, West Yorkshire, in September 2020.
Lawyers for Wan-Bissaka said the right-back was in a ‘state of complete ignorance’ of the Yorkshire driving matters as notification letters were sent to his former home in Croydon, London.
The failure to reply led to a six-month ban imposed at Leeds Magistrates’ Court in his absence on June 18 – just five days before his Lamborghini Urus was seized by police on the A34 after officers stopped him, Manchester Magistrates’ Court heard.
Today (Monday) Wan-Bissaka, who lives with his partner and 12-month-old child in Hale, Greater Manchester, was banned from driving for six months.
He also received a fine of £30,000 for driving while disqualified, together with fines totalling £1,500 for failing to give information on the speeding matters.
The footballer was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge fee of £190 and court costs of £160.
No separate penalty was issued for the insurance offence.
The court heard that Wan-Bissaka already had six points on his licence from a conviction in London in April 2020.
