Chris Smalling

The past few weeks has been a bad advertisement for the top leagues in Europe as cases of Fans misbehaviour have headlined the news. The recent case of a fan running onto the pitch in the derby clash between Birmingham and Aston Villa reinforces the dangerous precedent in recent years.

The male fan punched the Aston Villa from the back before being escorted by the police amid reports of potential jail time for the assault. Later during the day another fan ran onto the pitch in the clash between Arsenal and Manchester United and appeared to shove Chris Smalling before running to celebrate with the Arsenal players.
