JACK GREALISH has been assaulted by a fan who ran onto the pitch during the match between Aston Villa and Birmingham.
Grealish was assaulted by the fan as the ball went out of play after he ran onto the pitch evading security.
The fan was quickly apprehended by one steward and Grealish’s team-mates.
Aston Villa are taking on their local rivals at St Andrews where the incident occurred.
Ex-Birmingham star Darren Carter condemned the action, describing the action as “diabolical”.
He said: “It is a rivalry and you get passionate but you should never come on to the pitch. That is diabolical behaviour.”
