Fan posts footage breaking onto pitch, Casemiro's face was priceless

Fan posts footage breaking onto pitch, Casemiro's face was priceless

A fan ran onto the pitch during Manchester United's draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday, and took a selfie with Casemiro.

Casemiro was right in the thick of the action for Manchester United on Wednesday night, especially during the bizarre moment a pitch invader ran into the middle of the action.

The Brazilian has quickly become a fan favourite at United, since moving from Real Madrid in the summer, having won his fifth Champions League title.

It's no wonder considering the determination he showed just to get back onto the pitch, during the Manchester derby last weekend.

His participation in the game against Crystal Palace was in some doubt, with the threat of being suspended for the game against Arsenal hanging over him.

But the Brazilian did start and one fan clearly couldn't contain his excitement and ran onto the pitch at Selhurst Park during the second half, tracking down the midfielder and getting a selfie with him.

The footage has now emerged on social media and it's pretty clear that Casemiro wasn't too happy with what happened, especially with the fan kissing his neck, as you can see in the video below.

The worry about what fans do when they get on the pitch has long been an issue, and there was certainly questions about the speed of the stewards.

There was a good few seconds where the pitch invader was able to run on and track down the midfielder, and it wasn't even the fact he was chased down that ended the scene.

He had time to calmly walk away, after Casemiro was clearly fed up with him, before being met with security as he got near the touchline.

It follows last weekend where stewards were unable to stop a Tottenham Hotspur fan from walking down to the front of the stand and kicking Aaron Ramsdale.

He was able to disappear back into the stands, with his mates trying to cover him, but the cameras clearly caught him in the act.

Joseph Watts, 35, of Hackney has been charged with assault, following the attack, and will appear at Highbury Magistrates’ Court on February 17.

Whilst Casemiro's assailant clearly had no intent to hurt the United star, there's not much the stewards could have done if he had.

Either way, the Brazilian clearly wasn't happy at the whole situation, as his Jim in The Office style facial expressions clearly gave away.

The selfie taker wasn't the only person that the 30-year-old was unhappy with during the game however, after he did inevitably pick up the yellow card that will keep him out of the game against Arsenal.

Casemiro took out Wilfried Zaha but he obviously wasn't pleased with Bruno Fernandes for not ending the Palace attack before it got to him.

United will now be without him as they take on the league leaders, having already been dealt the blow of drawing with Wednesday's opposition in the title race.

The Gunners will take the confidence of having beaten local rivals Spurs into the latest game that will test their credentials to being the latest champions of England.
