Bruno Silva Horrifyingly Kicks Pitch Invader’s Head Only Moments After He Was Hit With A Judo Takedown

Bruno Silva shockingly kicked a pitch invader in the head after his fellow teammate had already wrestled him to the ground.

Figueirense clashed with fellow Brazilian side Avai in the Campeonato Catarinense at the Estadio Orlando Scarpelli on Sunday.

But tensions started to flare when Silva, 33, was substituted in the second half and the player provoked Figueirense fans 'behind the reserve bank of Avai.'

According to Superesportes, two of the rival fans managed to make it onto the pitch and darted towards the 33-year-old Brazilian defensive midfielder.

One of the Figueirense fans made it to the Avai bench, but was met by reserve 'keeper Gledson and was nailed to the floor with a judo-style strike.

However, Silva came charging out of the dugout and astonishingly kicked the downed pitch invader.

Gledson, 36, was also hit by his fellow teammate during the strike, but he continued to shield the rival fan and waved Silva away.

The Brazilian midfielder kicked the pitch invader in the legs while his teammate tried to force him away from the situation.

According to reports, Gledson needed to put ice on his face as a result of the kick he received from Silva.

The military police were called into action and 'controlled the confusion in the camp,' according to Superesportes.

The two fans involved in the pitch invasion were removed from the stadium and taken to the police station, but tensions flared in the stands as a fight broke out between Figueirense fans.

Esporte Interativo reports that fans also broke chairs in the stands and the match 'was paralyzed for 21 minutes.'

Following on from the match, Silva addressed the situation and argued that he had not provoked the incident with rival fans.

"I didn't provoke you," he said. "Football is 'mimimi.' I respect Figueirense. We just have to celebrate our victory."

Goals from Pedro Castro and Jonathan Luiz sealed a 2-0 victory for Avai over Figueirense.
