£7,000 fine to be paid by Man Utd for three pitch invasions in Juventus defeat

Manchester United have been fined £7,000 over three separate pitch invasions during their Champions League defeat by Juventus last month.

The incidents occurred during United’s 1-0 loss to the Italian giants, in which Paolo Dybala scored the decisive goal.

And UEFA announced on Friday that United will be sanctioned to the tune of £7,000 for the security lapse.

All three of the invaders appeared to run towards Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Juventus star taking a selfie with one that made it onto the pitch after full-time.

It later emerged that one of the pitch invaders got into Old Trafford with two toy guns in his bag.

He did not take them on the pitch. Afterwards, United said they were reviewing their ‘pitchside security protocol’.
