Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has been accused of ‘driving out of control’ following a crash which left his £170,000 Lamborghini wedged beneath a roadside barrier.

The Argentinian reserve keeper, 32, was slammed by a relative of a family reported to have been involved in the crash, which occurred off the A6144, near the club’s Carrington training ground on Monday morning.

Dave Morton, an ex-England international speedway star, claims Romero was ‘lucky not to kill’ his daughter and two grandchildren in the collision, the Mirror reported.  

Sergio Romero, Manchester United’s reserve keeper, 32, was slammed by a relative of a family reported to have been involved in the crash, which occurred off the A6144, near the club’s Carrington training ground on Monday morning. 

‘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.’

He also slammed the football club for failing to get in touch to check on the welfare of his daughter and family in the wake of the smash.

‘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. 

‘How long before he kills someone!’ he added.

Footage emerged yesterday of the United man stood safely to one side of the wreckage with his Lamborghini wrecked and debris strewn across the road. 

It had been a cold and icy night across Manchester going into Monday morning with temperatures hovering above freezing, with drivers needing to have been particularly careful on the roads. 

A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police said: ‘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 is unclear whether the Vauxhall Astra was carrying Mr Morton’s relatives. 

Romero’s wife posted on Twitter in the aftermath of the incident. She wrote: ‘Thanks for always taking care my family,’ alongside an image of Jesus Christ.

Romero was signed by Manchester United in 2015 and has made 52 appearances for the club.
