VIDEO: Stewards at Leeds get punched and kicked by Birmingham fans who tried to invade pitch

Footage has been posted on social media showing stewards at Leeds United getting punched and kicked by Birmingham fans.

It came at the end of the game which saw Leeds come out victorious with a 1-0 win thanks to Kalvin Phillips who rifled the ball into the net on the 65th minute.

@jonathanbuchan wrote: “Terrible scenes inside Elland Road from the Birmingham City fans. A few stewards receiving punches and kicks as they tried to apprehend a Birmingham fan who ran onto the pitch.”

According to BBC Radio Leeds, at least two stewards – including one female – were physically assaulted by a section of the away end.

Noel Whelan reacted on BBC Radio Leeds: “Disgusting scenes. Absolutely no need for it. They [Birmingham fans] threw a flare into the Leeds end, trying to antagonise them. Then it all starts kicking off on our own stewards. They should be ashamed of themselves.”

The host later stated that the female was back on her feet after the incident, and that the male victim was sitting upright while being treated by paramedics.

The trouble tried to flare up outside the ground also…

Blues boss Pep Clotet said: Of course you don’t want violence in the game anywhere. I just hope that no-one is hurt and calmed down as much as possible. You come to football to enjoy it and have a good day.”


After finding out or seeing the incident at Leeds today, fans took to express their outrage and shock – see what they wrote on the next page.

    A load of rubbish. I was one of those blues fans there yesterday. Heavy handed stewarding and policing as usual before during and after the game. Children being pushed by the stewards and women. Leeds fans throwing bottles and coins in the ground at the end of game no mention of that anywhere. As for the worse violence load of rubbish also. If people are going to publish stories and opinions make sure that they get both sides and stop being so biased
