Posted By High Press 10 on March 10, 2019 - Last Updated on March 11, 2019

Aston Villa‘s Jack Grealish was attacked on the pitch today by a Birmingham City fan during a match.


The attack happened less than 10 minutes into the derby game. The fan rushed Grealish, Aston Villa’s captain, who was in the Birmingham penalty area, and punched him from behind in the head.

The attacker was restrained and ushered off the pitch, blowing kisses to the fan like a doofus. Later identified as Paul Mitchell, 27, he pleaded guilty to the attack on Monday.

Another angle of the attack here:

Ugly day for British soccer.

The derby game between these two clubs is a heated affair. As seen in the gallery below, police were brought in for crowd control as emotions were running high before the game.
