Steven Gerrard says Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen came under attack after Manchester City title win | Soccer News


Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen was tackled as he left the pitch after the 3-2 loss to Manchester City.

Olsen, who arrived at Villa Park on loan from Roma in January, was making his debut for the club in place of injured Emi Martinez.

When asked if the players were safely off the pitch after the game amid a pitch invasion after City won the Premier League title, Villa boss Steven Gerrard said: ” No is the answer to that. My goalkeeper was attacked. So I think these questions should go to Pep and Manchester City.”

Asked about Olsen’s condition, Gerrard added: “We’ll check it out.”

A Manchester City club statement read: “Manchester City would like to sincerely apologize to Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen who was assaulted after the final whistle in today’s game when supporters entered the field.

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

Sky Sports News contacted Greater Manchester Police for comment.
