Everyone loves Jack Grealish… except EFL statement, steward and mindless fans

A fan was removed after attacking Aston Villa's Jack Grealish right on the pitch during the Sky Bet Championship soccer match at St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium Birmingham England on Sunday

A former Doncaster Rovers star has said he wants to see armed police officers at football matches after Aston Villa star Jack Grealish was attacked during a game.

And in a statement on behalf of Mitchell, the defence said he "has apologised to Grealish" for the actions which have "brought shame upon his family".

Before we go, please enjoy the highlight of the weekend - Newcastle's incredible comeback from 2-0 down against Everton to win 3-2.

Vaughn Whistance, his solicitor, told the court: "There have been various comments posted on different social media platforms".

Jack Grealish was punched by a Birmingham City supporter in the 9th minute of their derby match. "We will be working closely with the Metropolitan Police in their investigation". "His initial foolish intention was to just go onto the pitch and whip up the crowd". The spectator, clad in a Birmingham City jacket, attacked Grealish from behind, his blow landing on the side of Grealish's head.

West Midlands Police confirmed a steward was spoken to in the aftermath of Grealish's goal celebration but refuted claims that an arrest was made.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville called on the authorities to throw the book at Birmingham, tweeting: "The club are going have to take a huge punishment for this to act as a deterrent in the future".

Explaining his reasoning, Kelly said it would've been about putting "politics aside" and "governing the country". "The big separation of families, that was a decision made by the Attorney General", said Kelly.

Speaking of Grealish, he would continue to play in the game, and scored the first goal in the hotly contested match.

"The banter between the fans and the singing is all good, there was a fantastic buzz out there, but to have antics like that in the game is absolutely disgusting", said Corkman Hourihane.

However, he left for more regular first-team football when Aitor Karanka signed him for Nottingham Forest in January 2018 for just £1 million and the move has paid off. He is set to appear in court on Monday, according to Sky Sports.

A fan ran onto the pitch during the Championship duel, punching Grealish from behind.

Paul Mitchell, from Rubery in Worcestershire, also admitted entering the pitch unlawfully.

"We find ourselves at a loss for words after yet another incident at a football ground which has endangered the safety of one of our members", the statement read.

"In addition, we have written to both Birmingham City and Arsenal to seek their observations to examine the security measures they had in place".
