Neville and Keane beat the brutal invaders


City won the Premier League – their fourth title in the last five campaigns under Pep Guardiola – on the last day of the season on Monday (AEST), beating 2-0 and beating Aston Villa 3-2 at Etihad Stadium .

However, as has been the case at several venues across the country in recent weeks, City’s victory sparked scenes where fans went out on the field full-time.

While most of the fans celebrated peacefully, it was evident that some fans approached the goalkeeper of “Villa” Robin Olsen, whom the stewards had to accompany from the field.

Steven Gerrard later confirmed that his goalkeeper had been “attacked”, while City issued a statement apologizing to Villa and Olsen, promising to conduct a full investigation.

The incident is the result of a Nottingham Forest fan being jailed for attacking Sheffield United striker Billy Sharpe at the end of the semi-final of the playoffs, while at the bottom of the pyramid Port Vail fans have been embroiled in a quarrel with Swindon Town players. .

On Friday, Everton fans went on the field to celebrate the 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace, which secured them Premier League status.

One fan seemed to annoy the palace boss Patrick Vieira, who seemed to pounce on the fan.

This is a situation that worries former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville.

“It’s been a brilliant last 20 or 30 years when we’ve taken down the fence in English football and the fans are respected and 99 times out of 100 they don’t go out on the field because they like the family environment, much more. children come to the game, much more women come to the game, ”Neville said on Sky Sports.

“Suddenly over the last few weeks, months you are not only running on the field, which is a problem, but if you are attacking managers and players – what are you doing?

“Running on the field, they won the league, they are crazy, I understand, but attack the opponent’s players on the field – where is it from, why is it happening?

“I have no idea, it’s absolutely ridiculous.”

It was an opinion echoed by Neville’s former partner at Manchester United Keane, who is concerned about what might happen next.

He said: “A player or manager will get seriously injured. If you are angry enough to hit a player, you will be angry enough to do something stupid, such as stab a player.”

“I think people came back after COVID and forgot how to behave. Idiots, bastards, shame. Absolutely shameful. “
