Manchester City won the Premier League on Sunday, but an Ashton Villa player was reportedly assaulted during the fan celebration. 

Ashton Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen was assaulted after the final whistle.

Man City released a statement:

Manchester City would like to sincerely apologise to Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who was assaulted after the final whistle at today’s match when fans entered the pitch.

The Club has launched an immediate investigation and once identified, the individual responsible will be issued with an indefinite stadium ban.
