Manchester United right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka risks spending 6-month in prison for driving when he is not qualified to do so.
Reports in the United Kingdom claimed that the 23-year-old English football star decided to drive himself in a £170,000 Lamborghini Urus on the A34 in Stockport, Greater Manchester, on June 23, 2021.
The reports also claimed that Aaron Wan-Bissaka drove the car without insurance and an authorized license.
Recall that in 2020, Wan-Bissaka was arrested for overspeeding at 104mph. He was later released and fined £600 for the crime in October that same year. He was also given six points on his Driving License which disqualified him from driving.
Despite that, the Manchester United football star decided to allegedly test the law by cruising around town in his 4×4 wheel. Unfortunately, he was noticed and has to face the music in court.
His alleged crime of driving while disqualified was taken to Stockport Magistrates’ court on Thursday, August 19. According to a report by the Daily Mail, the football star was not present at the hearing.
After the court hearing, it was confirmed that the representatives of Aaron Wan-Bissaka did not enter a plea on his behalf until the hearing was adjourned.
The England international who is actively fighting to keep his place at Manchester United is expected to make it to court on September 1 for the continuation of the hearing.
If he is found guilty, Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be thrown into prison for 6-month or sentence to community service instead of being imprisoned.
The football star would prefer to engage in community service instead of spending six months of his career in prison. If he is given community service, that would not affect his football career at Manchester United.
Wan-Bissaka has been at Manchester United since July 1, 2019, after he made his mega move from Crystal Palace which cost the Red Devils a whopping €55 million.
Though he has played for England under-20 and under-21, the English right-back has not made an appearance for the Three Lions of England. However, he has been invited to the team on a couple of occasions.
As it stands, Aaron Wan-Bissaka still has the chance of switching back to his ancestral country, the Democratic Republic of Congo. He has played briefly with the country’s under-20 team and the country has been waiting on him to choose the country’s senior team over England.
However, Wan-Bissaka who was disappointedly left out of Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad, is still hoping to become a full-blown England international.
