French star Samir Nasri who plays alongside Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho at Manchester City had his £330,000 Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli Edition impounded after being pulled over by police on derby day.
The incident occurred as the star made his way to the Manchester derby on Sunday, where his side lost to bitter rivals Manchester United – no thanks to a Marcus Rashford lone strike.
The former Arsenal midfielder was seen leaning against the wall after being pulled over by police, as his £330,000 supercar was not registered in Britain.
Nasri was pictured on Wilson Street in the Beswick area of the city, not far from from his club’s multi-million pound training complex, before being picked up by a club chauffeur.
TwoSyncOfficial took to Twitter and posted a picture of the former Arsenal player’s car being investigated by police officers.
They said: ‘On our way to today’s game we walked past Nasri being pulled over in his new Lambo lmao [sic].’
This comes just days after the Frenchman was pictured leaving the Etihad Stadium in the Lamborghini, as he continues his recovery from long-term injury. Nasri only recently returned to training and has been feeling his way back to full fitness.
It’s not the first run in Nasri has had with the law over his cars. In 2013 he was banned from driving for six months after losing a battle with police over unpaid speeding fines.
The winger was also ordered to pay £1,900 in fines after admitting three charges of failing to provide police with the identity of who was driving his Mercedes when it was flashed by speed cameras three times.
The Frenchman is expected to make a playing return in early April and was involved fully with training at the Etihad ahead of City’s derby defeat against rivals United.
