Roma defender Jonathan Zebina has been involved in a car crash in the Italian capital.

The Frenchman emerged from the crash relatively unscathed, suffering minor cuts and bruises, and is not expected to be missing from action.

Accoording to some reports in Italy, it t has been claimed that Zembina was driving Vincent Candela’s car, and crashed it into a rubbish container, writing the vehicle off.

Zembina has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent days with reports suggesting that Gerard Houllier is preparing a £9 million bid for the 24-year-old defender.
