The Man Who Took Picture Of Gabriel Agbonlahor Falling Over Has Finally Posted The Image, Seven Years Later

It's the moment you have all been waiting for. Almost seven years after a Liverpool fan was spotted taking a picture of Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor after he collided with an advertising hoarding, the infamous image has finally emerged online.

On January 18th, 2014, Brendan Rodgers' side suffered a major scare in the opening 35 minutes of their Premier League clash.

Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke found the net early on and a shock looked to be on the cards at Anfield but after a shaky start, the Reds managed to secure a point thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard.

Although it was an entertaining game full of goals, a moment involving that opportunistic Liverpool supporter grabbed the headlines on a cold afternoon on Merseyside.

In the 29th minute Villa's pacey striker Gabriel Agbonlahor couldn't stop himself from falling over an advertising hoarding after a collision with defender Martin Škrtel.

Then, in a moment that will go down in Premier League history, the man decided to whip out his camera.

"You can't really see what he does when he lands," says commentator Alan Smith. "But the supporters can...somebody is taking a picture of him. Oh dear!"


Almost seven years on and finally the picture has emerged online and well, it didn't disappoint.

As you can see in the image below, someone has snapped the original picture of an injured Agbonlahor from the man's old-school camera - a shot for the ages.

It didn't take long for Agbonlahor to respond to the image circulating online. "Out of order lol" he said on his official Twitter account.

Back in October last month, Gabriel Agbonlahor was mocked by Leeds for his comments directed towards the club after their 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Patrick Bamford's second-half hat-trick sealed a convincing win at Villa Park in October as Marcelo Bielsa's men moved to third place in the Premier League.

The 34-year-old firmly believed that his side would beat Leeds and spent plenty of time taking swipes at the club ahead of the match. He called them a "myth" in one tweet and also took shots at club manager Bielsa.

However, he was soon left with egg on his face after the victory over Villa and the club took to Twitter to respond to him in brutal fashion.
