The crowd cheered on the football fan as the pitch invader evaded 14 stewards.
Social media has made the footage viral, showing the fan’s daring attempts to bypass security and gain entry onto the pitch for a match. The fan ran up and down the walkway looking for a gap in between the security personnel and the pitch. They were surrounded by two metal barriers.
After having failed to locate a gap, the fan looks around and finds a space between the stewards. Then they make their way towards the pitch.
After jumping over the metal barrier they are followed by three officers before turning over the advertising hoardings, and sprinting towards central circle.
The stewards stop trying to stop the fan from getting onto the pitch and decide not to chase them onto it. One user on Twitter wrote: “Moving like Messi with those feints.”
Other commentators have made fun of Manchester United’s defence and Marcus Rashford as winger, including one who said: “Better than Rashford.”
