A child-carrying supporter who was involved in a confrontation with a Lyon player during Thursday’s Europa League defeat at Goodison Park, has been banned for life by Everton. The English club revealed they had identified the fan following an internal investigation into the disturbances and registered a formal complaint against the individual with Merseyside Police.
The chaos was caused after a barge by Everton’s Ashley Williams on Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes which sparked a fracas behind the goal in which the Everton supporter – carrying a small child – appeared to push a Lyon player.
Uefa is awaiting reports from match officials before deciding on action.
The football fan was identified by the club today and the individual will be ‘indefinitely’ banned from attending future Everton matches.
Police are now investigating the incident.
