Thomas Lemar And Yannick Carrasco Drive To Atletico Madrid Training In A Fiat Panda

Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Carrasco ended up driving to training in a car you would least associate with a footballer yesterday.

Spain have been hit by a record snowfall in recent days, in particular in the capital city.

As a result, it meant that some of Diego Simeone's squad could not get to training and the club had to send 4x4 cars to pick them up from their homes.



But there was another alternative opted for by Carrasco. He borrowed an old Fiat Panda from one of his neighbours as the car "drives smoothly in the snow".

The former Monaco man picked up teammates Thomas Lemar and Sime Versajko, with Marcos Llorente posting footage of the trio driving to the Wanda Metropolitano on Monday morning and looking like they were in The Inbetweeners.


We just love the fact that top level footballers typically have luxury sports cars as their vehicles of choice and there was a car from 1980 in the car park.

But if it gets you from A to B then that's all that matters.


Explaining the difficulties in getting everyone in to train, Simeone said: "There was a great job from all the employees who work on the playing field so that the field is available today so that we can work.

"We came in vans. Obviously, the main highways and roads are fine, but in Madrid urbanisations are difficult to get out of.

"You have to find a way to do it. The point was to be able to get together here and train well, which today we could do very well."
