Chelsea news star, Tiemoue Bakayoko, was on Thursday involved in a car crash after he left the club’s Cobham training ground at 4.40pm and suffered no serious injury during the minor accident.
According to Dailymail UK, the France midfielder was driving his £150,000 Mercedes G63 AMG SUV when the crash happened five minutes drive from Chelsea’s training complex in Surrey.
It was gathered that the 23-year-old’s brother, Namory, had previously raised concerns over Tiemoue driving in England, claiming that he doesn’t like driving on the left side of the road.
‘Tiemoue told me he wasn’t allowing himself to drive because he thinks it’s too crazy driving on the left! But he’ll get round to it,’ he said.
In a statement, Surrey Police confirmed the incident. ‘Surrey Police attended Blundel Lane in Oxshot around 4.40pm following a one vehicle collision,’ a spokesperson said.
‘The driver did not suffer any injuries. There were delays for drivers while the vehicle awaited recovery.’
