Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira kicks Everton fan during pitch invasion (Video)
On another horrible night for football, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira was caught on camera kicking an Everton fan to the ground during a pitch invasion.
Everton fans flooded the Goodison Park pitch as their team battled back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 and secure their place in the Premier League after a relegation struggle.
The supporter was seen in a viral video goading Vieira as he walked across the pitch and back to the changing room. The Arsenal veteran then spun around and kicked the supporter in the face in response to the provocation.
"I don't have anything to say about that," Vieira remarked after the game when asked about the incident.
Everton manager Frank Lampard, meanwhile, said: "I feel for Patrick. I didn't get him at the end. I would have said: "Come in with us," although he might not have wanted that. Of course, he ran 80 yards across the pitch, and it's not easy. "
The Toffees boss also defended the right of supporters to invade the pitch "as long as they behave", adding: "It was [the] pure elation of fans who had come on the pitch after avoiding relegation." If it is done in the right way, let them stay on the pitch, let them have their moment. As long as they behave, no problem. "
Dion Dublin, a former Manchester United and Aston Villa striker, criticised supporters for going on the pitch. He said: "Having fans on the pitch is not the way forward. We have to stop letting fans on the pitch." You can't have players in fear of their lives if they are on the pitch. For any player or member of staff on the pitch, it's a scary place to be. "
