A steward has been captured on video slipping up whilst trying to catch a streaker at a pre-season friendly between Manchester United and Leeds United today.
The game against the bitter rivals was taking place over in Australia, though whilst the game was in-play, one ‘fan’ tried to invade the pitch it would see, only to not even reach that far.
Steward came rushing in, seven to be precise, one tripped up and fell whilst others came and managed to get the supporter down on the ground.
He was quickly escorted out of the Optus Stadium in Perth, but it certainly got one of the biggest cheers of the game.
