Night of football clashes sees mass pitch invasions and altercation between Vieira and fan
Sky News says Mass pitch invasions at two football grounds led to “physical and verbal” abuse as well as an altercation between a manager and a fan – in a night of soccer clashes condemned as “disgusting”.
Footage has emerged of an incident between Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira and an Everton fan who appears to fall to the ground after a highly-charged relegation decider game.
The man had invaded the pitch with hundreds of other fans as the final whistle sounded after Everton beat Palace to secure their place in the Premier League next season.
Vieira was walking across the pitch towards his team’s dressing room at the other side of the ground when an Everton fan approached him, prompting a reaction from the Palace boss.
