Milan-owned Niang arrested

Milan-owned striker Mbaye Niang is in custody after reportedly lying about a car accident and resisting arrest.

The teenage striker is currently on loan at Montpellier, but seems to have lost none of his penchant for trouble.

French police confirmed Niang was “summoned and detained” at a station after his Ferrari crashed into a tree near the Montpellier training ground.

At first he had denied being at the wheel and reportedly left when police arrived, as he had his driving licence suspended due to accumulation of points.

This isn’t entirely new behaviour, as Niang famously drove in Milan without a valid licence and told traffic police he was teammate Bakaye Traorè instead.

Niang has scored three goals in four Ligue 1 games for Montpellier.
