Well, as if their football results getting worse wasn't enough, and the fact that an American (madman) is buying them, it seems Manchester United are also having some trouble with their players on the road.
Wayne Rooney crashed his BMW X5 into a small Nissan, driven by a 45 year old woman this week. The 19 year old escaped without injuries, but the other driver had to be treated for whiplash injuries. (Isn't that what they all claim to have after a car accident?) Rooney is charged with dangerous driving, and is risking a £5000 fine, and losing his license.
Rio Ferdinand was out driving one morning on 9th January, when he passed the police on the M6... while cruising at 170km/h.
The footballer most likely didn't spot the police car, as he actually passed in and continued at full speed along the highway. Ferdinand will most likely lose his drivers license, the decision will be made May 25th.
