Fan walks onto Bramall Lane pitch to berate Alejandro Garnacho over 'diving'

Fan walks onto Bramall Lane pitch to berate Alejandro Garnacho over 'diving'

A fan made his feelings known after Alejandro Garnacho fell to the group in Saturday's Premier League clash.

A frustrated Sheffield United fan walked down to the Bramall Lane touchline so he could berate Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho in a bizarre sequence of events.

Erik ten Hag's side secured a hard-fought win over struggling Sheffield United on Saturday night as goals from Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot sealed a crucial three points.

Oli McBurnie equalised from the penalty spot for The Blades after McTominay was punished following a handball in the box.

But a resilient United managed to record their second successive win in the Premier League thanks to a wonderful 25-yard strike from full-back Diogo Dalot.

The Reds would see out their slender lead and frustrate those home fans inside Bramall Lane.

In fact, one supporter made his feelings known in the latter stages, when Alejandro Garnacho won a free-kick in the 93rd minute.

As you can see from the footage below, the Sheffield United supporter can be seen making his way to the touchline before making a series of gestures to Garnacho.

The Argentine winger, alongside captain Bruno Fernandes and Rasmus Hojlund, can be seen trying to usher the fan away.

But the person in question decides to instead imitate Garnacho's so-called diving technique – that's until he was eventually caught by security.

After the full-time whistle, Erik ten Hag revealed his delight at the win. "Every game is tough in the Premier League," he said.

"Always after international breaks when players play different styles and systems with their nations and then when you get back you have to get back to your routine.

"You saw in the first half it was not our best game, it was far from fluid. We got a goal but we have to be more composed and more mature to stay in the game at 1-0 up and now give up the goal so quickly.

"At half time I said find a way to win and I think we were much better in the second half."

Ten Hag also spoke about Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton, who sadly passed away on Saturday morning, aged 86.

"What he achieved in football was immense," he added. "Also his personality off the pitch. The football world lost a big man.

"We had to show our respect for him and I think we did that today. We wanted to celebrate but also to remember him."
