Police investigating after Vieira-fan altercation

Police and the Football Association are investigating after Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira was involved in an altercation with a fan following their Premier League defeat at Everton.

Television footage showed him being taunted by an Everton supporter as fans ran on to the pitch at full-time.

The Frenchman appeared to kick out at the fan before being ushered away by other supporters.

Police say they have not received a formal complaint about the incident.

“Merseyside Police is investigating an altercation on the pitch at Goodison Park following the Everton v Crystal Palace match on Thursday,” the force said in a statement.

“We are working with Everton to gather all available CCTV footage and are speaking to witnesses.

“No formal complaint has been received and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”

Everton staged a stunning comeback to win and retain their top-flight status.

“I have nothing to say about that,” Vieira said when asked about the incident during his post-match news conference.
