ROME, February 29 – AC Milan striker M’baye Niang was involved in a car accident on Saturday night, but claimed Monday it was a minor incident in which he had been merely a passenger.

Earlier that evening he had helped Milan beat Torino 1-0 at home in lashing and relentless rain.

“I and my driver are both in good health. The car was aquaplaning, there was more fear than harm. Ready for the rest of the season with Milan, Forza Milan,” the Frenchman, who does not have a driving licence, wrote on Twitter.

Previously, Sky Sport had reported that he would be out for two months with ankle and shoulder injuries, and that he had taken a breathalyser test, which proved negative.

In February 2014, when he was with Montpellier, Niang was given an 18 month suspended sentence for a road accident involving a Ferrari.

The player had fled and denied the charges, before spending four days in custody. The court cancelled his driving licence and banned him from the roads for three years.

The 21-year-old has had a breakthrough few months at the San Siro and has scored eight goals and provided five assists in 20 games in all competitions this season.
