Former Leicester winger Knockaert caught speeding

Former Leicester City star Anthony Knockaert has been fined £20,000 after being found guilty of breaching the speed limit on the A27.

The French winger, who now plays for Brighton and Hove Albion, was caught speeding on the A27, and the police officer who pursued him described his driving as “the worst example of impatient, arrogant and intimidating driving he had ever seen”

Knockaert was given a nine point penalty on his licence and was also asked to pay £85 in costs and a £170 victim surcharge by the Crawley Magistrates’ Court in a hearing on Tuesday.


Meanwhile the Seagulls, who finished 7 points and six places below Leicester in the 2017/18 Premier League season, have also announced the signing of Romanian striker Florin Andone from Deportivo, as reported by FootballWest.Tv. The 25 year old has moved for a reported fee of £5.25m, with an official switch set to take place on June 8. Andone has already been capped by Romania at international level and also represented the national side at Euro 2016.

Andone scored 18 goals in his two years at Depor after joining them from Cordoba, effectively averaging 0.25 goals a game. Deportivo were relegated to the Segunda Division at the end of the 2017/18 season.
