JOHN STONES struggled to get into Manchester City training on Wednesday morning – thanks to his flash, new £265,000 Rolls Royce.
The England defender, 25, held up his team-mates on their way into the Etihad Campus because security didn’t recognise the vehicle, according to eyewitnesses.
Hilariously, onlookers revealed impatient pals Riyad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero jokingly beeped their horns at Stones as they queued behind him in foggy Manchester.
But if there’s ever a car to be stuck in in a queue, I can think of worse than a luxurious Rolls…
Mahrez was one behind the striker in his Audi RS6 as the squad rocked up for a post-match brief, having beaten Sheffield United 1-0 at Bramall Lane just hours earlier.
And it was that man Aguero who notched the winner, having started the game on the bench.
His replacement for the starting XI in Sheffield, Gabriel Jesus, had earlier spurned a glorious chance to give his side the lead, as his penalty was saved by Dean Henderson.
Elsewhere on an action-packed morning at the Etihad Campus, Claudio Bravo was also forced to wait to gain access to training.
The Chilean goalkeeper was held up while road-workers painted new lines on the road outside the training facilities.
