A FAN ran on the pitch to make a crunching tackle on live TV.
Kaylum Green, 21, slid in on Solihull Moors striker Adam Rooney, 33, during their game at Altrincham.
Man City fan Kaylum said he was sacked from his labouring job that morning for being late and did it to cheer himself up.
Kaylum, who had necked two pints of beer, said: “While I was in the stands, I thought ‘f*** it’.”
He had wanted to take a penalty in Tuesday’s National League game, shown live on BT Sport.
But, with Altrincham losing, Rooney ran to the corner on 89 minutes to waste time.
Kaylum then dashed on and pulled off a tackle worthy of Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.
He raised his arms and slid over the pitch to celebrate, before being escorted out.
Rooney tweeted after their 2-1 win: “Lad should have got Man of the Match for that tackle! Can’t go in with two feet these days though!”
After the clip went viral, Kaylum texted his boss to thank him for firing him. He added: “I told him he’d made me famous. He’d be f**** fuming about that.”
Police said yesterday they are investigating.
