It never ceases to amaze us here at Soccer Transfer how big name football stars are constantly in the press for motoring violations, bet it speeding or under the influence of alcohol, when they could so easily afford to hire themselves a chauffeur.
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is the latest to fall victim to a road crime after being caught speeding in Sale Greater Manchester.
The 28-year-old Belgium international, who already had 15 points on his license was caught doing 81 miles per-hour in a 40 mph zone according to the Manchester Evening News and then just six minutes later clocked doing 59 miles per-hour in a 30mph zone.
‘Mr Fellaini was caught driving along Cross Street at 4.46pm on the 7th May and was travelling at 81mph in a 40mph zone,’ prosecuting, Mr Richard Doughty, said.
‘Six minutes later at 4.52pm he was caught travelling at 59mph in a 30mph zone.’
For his offense the big Belgium received a paltry £1,188 fine and ordered to pay £170 court costs, a £150 criminal court charge, and a £120 victim surcharge.
Fellaini is now forced to hire a driver after being banned from driving for nine months.
