Casemiro had a priceless reaction to the fan who ran up to him during Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Pitch invaders are not unusual, in fact, they seem to be more common than ever. All most every other game you watch now has a crazed fan running onto the pitch for an up-close glimpse of their heroes.
This is what happened on Wednesday evening when one Manchester United fan sprinted up to Brazilian midfielder Casemiro in the middle of the game.
There was something strange about this particular situation, there wasn’t a steward in sight. The fan had enough time to stop, whip out his phone and record a video with the confused midfielder.
The fan in question has now released the footage and it is just as bizarre as you would expect.

He even had time to give him a kiss on the neck.
Although everything was civilised and ended up fine, it could’ve easily gone astray. If we think about the fan who assaulted Jack Grealish some years back or even the Tottenham fan who kicked Aaron Ramsdale last week, there is cause for concern.
