Coventry Fan Spends 20 Seconds On Pitch Trying To Win Ball Back And Berating Players

With Coventry City trailing Forest Green 1-0 in English League Two football on Tuesday, one Coventry supporter took issue with his side’s inability to win the ball back and invaded the pitch to help apply pressure near the corner flag. Play appropriately stopped, but with security absolutely nowhere in sight, the fan proceeded to berate his team’s players before showing himself back to his seat.

The lack of security is obviously disturbing, but the hairdryer treatment was somewhat deserved with the team having failed to score in three straight matches now.

Real Madrid hosted Tottenham at Santiago Bernabéu as both sides are struggling be group leaders in this season’s UCL.

The match was certainly one of the day’s highlights, with Real Madrid displaying a somewhat patched lineup due to the injuries of Mateo Kovacic, Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale.
