Reports have emerged stating that bailiffs turned up at Oldham Athletic last week to fine a player £400 for driving in the bus lane.
Manchester Council officers turned up at the League Two club after the unnamed footballer was caught using a bus lane in a car that was registered to the Latics and that penalty notices were not paid straightaway.
In quotes by the Daily Mail, a Manchester Council spokesman said: “Bailiffs visited the club in relation to a penalty charge notice incurred by a vehicle which was on lease to them.
“The outstanding debt has been paid in full.”

Moroccan businessman Abdallah Lemsagam took them over in January and has said he is fully committed to getting the club back into League One as quickly as possible.
