The Spanish football authorities have been forced to investigate an incident after a fan invaded the pitch during last weekend’s match between Guadalcacin and Deportes Romero and knocked out the visitors’ keeper in a brutal assault.
TheÂ incident came about after the match was halted when a Guadalcacin was grounded on the turf. After a brief face-off between the teams, the rogue fan took his aggression out on the Romero goalie by punching him in the face. Understandably, the keeper, who had his back turned at the time, immediately fell to the floor before the surrounding players were able to separate the fan from the rest of the Romero players.
Footage of the incident can be seen here.
