Jason Roberts punched a Coventry fan in the face

Someone didn’t take the FA Cup defeat very well

Jason Roberts

On Tuesday night, Blackburn Rovers were dumped out of the FA Cup by Coventry City, the side who also spanked them 4-1 at Ewood Park in the same competition last year. Striker Jason Roberts has landed himself in hot water after a 17-year-old Sky Blue fan let him know how rubbish his team is. The Sun reports:

Premier League ace Jason Roberts punched a jubilant 17-year-old fan in the face after the lad’s side dumped Blackburn out of the FA Cup, it was claimed yesterday.

Police were called when the striker, 30, allegedly flipped as he boarded his team’s coach home.

Shocked witnesses, including an off-duty cop, said the £3million star vaulted a barrier to belt the jeering Coventry City supporter.

A ‘member of Coventry City staff’ (that’ll be a steward) said the youngster had facial injuries from the shocking incident, but no arrests have been made.

If the mouthy fan wants revenge, he’ll get at least two opportunities next season when the clubs meet in the Championship.
