Sergio Romero has been accused of ‘driving out of control’ by a relative of a family said to have been involved in a car crash with the Man Utd goalkeeper.
Former England international speedway star Dave Morton claims Romero was ‘lucky not to kill’ his daughter Kara and two grandchildren Kendall and Ellis in a collision which occurred on Monday morning .
Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a crash had taken place after images emerged of Romero’s £170,000 Lamborghini wedged underneath a roadside barrier off the A6144, near United’s Carrington training base.
The police report added that no one was injured, as United confirmed Romero had escaped unscathed.
However Morton has alleged in a rant on Facebook that the incident could have been far worse.
“My daughter Kara and 2 grandchildren Kendall and Ellis were innocent victims of a car crash involving Sergio Romero the Manchester United goalkeeper who crashed his high powered car into her car driving out of control on the Carrington spur road this morning,” Morton said. “She was lucky they weren’t killed.”
Morton is the brother of Chris Morton, MBE, who was both a World Cup gold medalist and a World Pairs Champion in Speedway.
He went on to state United had not even been in touch to check on the welfare of his daughter and family.
“The papers say no other car was involved, well there was and she now has no car and not heard a thing from Manchester United to see how she is or any help regarding how she will get around until the insurance is sorted,” Morton said, before adding: “How long before he kills someone!”
A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police stated: “Police were called shortly before 10am following a collision on Carrington Spur, Sale between a Lamborghini Gallardo and Vauxhall Astra.
“There are no reports of injuries and no arrests have been made.”
It has not been confirmed whether the Vauxhall Astra was carrying Morton’s relatives.
Romero’s wife Eliana Guercio – with whom the goalkeeper shares two children – posted on Twitter in the aftermath of the incident.
She wrote: “Thanks for always taking care my family,” alongside an image including a statue of the Virgin Mary and a picture of Jesus Christ.
Romero has been at United since 2015, making 52 appearances in that time.
