While Manchester City might not win the Premier League this year, they do have one achievement to boast about – after receiving a six-month driving ban last week, Micah Richards has now made City the first team to have three first-team players disqualified from driving.
Both Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri are also not allowed on UK roads for driving offences. But they’re not alone amongst their fellow footballers. Many players have found themselves on the wrong side of traffic laws.
So what would a team compromised purely of players who have been given a driving ban or been on the wrong side of traffic laws at some point look like?
If this squad ever came into existence, a team bus would be more needed than ever.
