The last 30 years we’ve brought, the fences down in English football and 99 times out of 100, the fans have, respected the fact that you don’t run on the, pitch because they enjoy the family environment.

“We’ve obviously got far more children, coming to the games, far more women, coming to the games, and all of a sudden in these last few weeks and, months, we’ve got these idiots not just, running on the pitch but attacking players. What, the hell are you doing?

“Running on the pitch is obviously delirious, because City have won, the league, so I get that, but attacking opposition players, on the pitch – where has this come from? Why is it happening? I’ve got, no idea. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
