Leicester City footballer Jeff Schlupp lost control of his Lamborghini Huracan on a wet M1 motorway in Leicestershire earlier this week – before reportedly laughing about it with police, saying he has “three other cars to choose from.”
- Leicester City owners treat players to fleet of BMW i8s
- We revved a Lamborghini Huracan and had to say ‘sorry’ a lot
- More car news on Motoring Research
That’s according to The Sun newspaper – but the premier league ace has now taken to social media accusing the paper of printing lies.
Typical papers. There was no police and I definitely do not have 3 other cars lol don’t believe everything you read ✌🏾️

According to the tabloid, Schlupp also owns a Mercedes-Benz, a Range Rover Sport – and a BMW i8 given as a present to all Leicester City players for winning the Premier League.
He’s one of seven ungrateful players who had their cars wrapped in a different colour from Leicester City Blue because they didn’t want to be identified by fans – or lose their car in the team’s car park.
Pictures from the crash show the Lamborghini Huracan heavily dented – including on the roof after crashing up the embankment off the M1 near Lutterworth in Leicestershire.
The 23-year-old striker was believed to have been heading to training when he lost control of the Lamborghini in the rain.
He walked away from the crash uninjured – but the Lamborghini, which has a list price of £155,000, was heavily damaged.
