Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka pleads guilty to three driving offences

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has pleaded guilty to three offences during a brief hearing at Manchester magistrates court today.

The right-back was disqualified from driving on June 18. However, he was still at the wheel of his Lamborghini Urus on June 23 when his ban was confirmed during a roadside police check in Stockport.

Wan-Bissaka has now pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified, without a licence and without insurance.

He was banned from driving from June 18 to December 17 following a hearing at West Yorkshire magistrates court.

Wan-Bissaka’s lawyer Shaun Draycott revealed that the 23-year-old is in Spain and not present in court for the hearing.

He was given unconditional bail until later this month. There will be a hearing on his previous and current offences on September 16 in Manchester.

A further hearing is expected at Skipton magistrates court on October 1.

The maximum punishment for driving while disqualified and without insurance is six months in jail.

However, he could be subject to a community service order as he has had no previous convictions.

Wan-Bissaka could also be punished for his offences with a hefty fine and a potential lengthy driving ban.

The player is still involved in day-to-day activities at the club and will be hoping for a lenient verdict next month.
