WEST Ham star Manuel Lanzini dodged a ban on driving his Porsche without a license or insurance – blaming the DVLA.
The midfielder29, took his £73,000 hybrid Cayenne to a pharmacy to get medicine for his wife.
He showed the police his Argentinian license in East London and admitted he should have exchanged it for a British one.
Father of a single Lanzini pleaded guilty before the City of London JPs.
He has six points and has to pay £1,735.
Attorney Mark Haslam said: “The court will be aware that the DVLA has not covered itself in glory during the pandemic and many people have postponed their license application.
“It was a short trip, a misjudgment.
“He doesn’t have to fill out a funds form.
“He’s wealthy, but I won’t give the bank any indication of how wealthy.”
