Five Footballers Who Were Caught Speeding

Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez is the most recent footballer to get caught speeding by the police during his off time... here are five other players who were caught out!

One who sticks out like a sore thumb is Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure. The player, who is a devout Muslim, was pulled over for driving recklessly while under the influence of alcohol. The Ivorian insisted to the courts that his drinks were spiked, but he still got a huge fine along with an 18-month driving ban.

Second on the list is Celtic midfielder/winger Scott Sinclair. On 8 March 2014, at 2am, the former Swansea star was caught by police speeding in his Ferrari. Sinclair got a hefty fine and a two-month driving ban.

When it comes to breaking the law on the road on more than one occasion, then one automatically thinks of Karim Benzema. The Real Madrid forward has been busted for driving without a licence twice, and has also been caught speeding in his Bugatti on numerous occasions.

Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is another footballer who enjoys speeding. The Manchester United midfielder was caught doing 81mph in a 40mph zone and was banned from driving for nearly a year.

Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas was caught by police in October 2015 for speeding on the A3 highway in Surrey. The Spanish international, who was driving his Aston Martin Vantage, clocked 110mph on the freeway by police holding a speed camera. The player was eventually banned from driving for six months. 

Can you think of any others?
