Patrick Vieira facing ban for kicking Everton fan during pitch invasion

Posted by

Patrick Vieira could face a three-game ban for kicking an Everton player following their pitch invasion on Thursday night. 

Everton defeated Crystal Palace 3-2, ensuring their Premier League survival, and inevitably, fans flocked to the pitch to celebrate with the Everton players.

Unfortunately, one Everton fan decided to approach Vieira, mocking him and filming himself doing so. The Palace manager reacted aggressively, kicking the fan to the ground.

The FA have now launched an investigation into the incident, as reported by The Sun, and Vieira could face a ban of up to three matches for violent conduct.

They do however expect Vieira to receive a warning rather than a suspension, so the French manager will have to keep his cool next time an incident like this occurs.

  1. Cantona was banned for far far longer . What’s the difference he was goaded as well and lost it.

    1. The difference Trevor, is that Cantona entered the crowd to attack that “supporter”. The Everton “supporter” that was abusing Viera had no business being on the playing field, indeed has broken the law by being there. 99% of people would have reacted as Viera did… Sick of entitled muppets thinking they can behave like animals and face no consequences.
