Sheffield United investigate crash believed to involve Lys Mousset’s car

Sheffield United have said they are “making internal enquiries” after a Lamborghini believed to belong to striker Lys Mousset was involved in a suspected drink-drive crash. Two men in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of drink driving after the car was involved in a collision with a number of parked vehicles in the early hours of Monday morning.

South Yorkshire Police said: “Police were called at around 12.10am this morning following reports of a collision on Abbeydale Road South, Sheffield.

“It is reported that an orange Lamborghini was involved in a collision with a number of parked cars. Two men in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of being over the prescribed limit. Both have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.”

Sheffield United said: “Officials at Sheffield United are aware of images circulating on social media and are currently making internal enquiries.”

Mousset, who joined the Blades from Bournemouth last summer for £10m, started the 2-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday. The 24-year-old has made six appearances in the Premier League this season.
