(Image) Everton ‘fan’ runs onto the pitch to confront Anthony Taylor after Conor Coady’s goal is overturned

Posted by

Conor Coady thought he had handed Everton the lead in the Merseyside derby but the goal was ruled out by VAR, leading to some understandable disappointment by the Goodison Park faithful.

Following the decision, the game was ready to restart via a free-kick that was to be taken by Alisson Becker.

Instead, the game was halted as a so-called supporter of the home team, who ran onto the pitch and confronted Antony Taylor.

Although the decision was clearly made by the officials in Stockley Park – the fan thought it was best to take out his anger out on the on-field referee (who had actually just awarded his side the goal).

It’s a shame when one person ruins it for everyone and can poorly represent a whole fanbase.
