Manchester United attacker Antony was reportedly seen looking at his phone screen while driving.
A fan captured the former Ajax Amsterdam man at the wheel of his exotic £300,000 Lamborghini Aventador.
Antony Matheus dos Santos drove to traffic lights close to Manchester United’s training base last Wednesday.
The video looked to show the brazilian holding the steering wheel with his left hand, with what looks to be a phone in his right hand as he slowed down. Antony was afterwards seen driving off still holding the device.
This reportedly happened the day before United’s 2-2 share of the spoils with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Using a phone while driving can lead to a motorist getting six penalty points in addition to a fine of £200 and Antony could be in line to receive such punishments.
The AA stated: “It is dangerous driving.”
Antony, who in the past crashed his BMW X6 on a motorway, joined Manchester United in the summer of 2022 from Dutch side Ajax for £85.5 million.
The ex-Sao Paulo prodigy wrecked his X6 in roadworks after featuring in a 1-0 victory for Manchester United against Wolves.
Police officers were called to the scene on the M56 close to his home in Hale, Greater Manchester.
Anyway, despite the crash, his £100,000 car was recovered but Antony was left shaken by the event.
Afterwards, Erik ten Hag left him out of the team that played in Manchester United’s 3-0 Premier League victory over Bournemouth in January.
The Brazilian has scored 10 goals and provided 4 assists in 44 appearances for Manchester United across all competitions this campaign.
Overall, Antony has scored 36 goals and made 30 assists in 160 appearances so far in his footballing career.
Anthony’s teammate, Marcus Rashford was also fined and handed six points on his driver’s license after confessing to speeding in Manchester in February last year.
Rashford was driving across the City center when he went beyond the speed limit of 20 miles per hour with his Mercedes G VRM.
The incident occurred in May 2022 and Marcus Rashford has acknowledged the offense.
Based on what we gathered, the Englishman was fined £574 by Manchester Magistrates’ Court due to the incident.
Rival and Manchester City star Erling Haaland was also reportedly caught on camera in March 2023 using a phone while driving close to the Etihad.
The Brazilian was seen distracted by his device on his lap while driving through the carriageway in the New Islington neighborhood of Manchester.
He appeared to be pressing his phone while driving in his £300,000 Rolls Royce Cullinan as Images show and police officers are said to be investigating the matter.
