Man City apologise after Robin Olsen was assaulted by fans at Etihad Stadium


Manchester City have apologised to Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen after he was assaulted by fans following the game on Sunday afternoon.

Olsen was attacked by City fans after thousands of them had ran onto the pitch once the final whistle blew.

City’s official statement on the matter reads: “Manchester City would like to sincerely apologise to Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who was assaulted after the final whistle at today’s match when fans entered the pitch.

“The Club has launched an immediate investigation and once identified, the individual responsible will be issued with an indefinite stadium ban.”

Man City won the Premier League title in dramatic circumstances on the final day of the season on Sunday. Having been two goals behind heading into the final 15 minutes of the game, the Citizens scored three quickfire goals to seal yet another league triumph.

The title is Pep Guardiola’s fourth as Man City manager, and the club’s second in consecutive seasons.
