The Sheffield United footballer was accused of “pushing” a Nottingham Forest fan on Tuesday night during the semi-finals of the Championship playoffs.

Wednesday appeared footage in which Oli McBurney seems to be confused with a fan on the field, and hear a Nottingham Forest fan say: “The Sheffield United player” just attacked him “.

It is unclear whether McBurney is associated with the fan or not.

The Football Association knows about the staff and studies them.

Sky Sports News has consulted with several sources, including a witness, to make sure Sheffield’s player is McBurney.

On Wednesday night, McBurney backed a tweet from a Sheffield United fan who said, “I wish the video was in full context – more like he was trying to step over it with one bad foot! It could be wrong!”

McBurney responded with a smiley face “100”, which is often used on social media to mean “100%”.

Sky Sports News also asked McBurney representatives for comment, but they have not yet responded.

Police are looking for the owner of the staff

Nottinghamshire police are investigating the incident.

Inspector Andy Wright said: “We have learned of a video being shared on social media showing a possible quarrel where you can see a Forest fan on the ground after the playoff semi-finals.

“Now we have started an investigation into this incident.

“The person in question has not yet reported the incident, but encourages them to speak with other people, many of whom have witnessed the incident or have video footage so that we can establish all the circumstances.

“We are especially asking the owner of the original footage to make contact.”

“Fan goes out illegally”

Sheffield United assistant Adam Gillan shared his version of events on Twitter, saying: , a ridiculous post, especially when stewards and police stood there and watched it happen, and were left to defend themselves. ”

This tweet “liked” McBurney.

Fans of Nottingham Forest stormed the field after beating Sheffield United on penalties on Tuesday, giving them a place in the playoff finals.

Neither Sheffield United nor Nottingham Forest have commented on the incident.

During this invasion, Sheffield United captain Billy Sharpe was attacked by a fanand a man was arrested on Wednesday.

Sharpe, who needed stitches on his head, called the man in charge a “mindless idiot.”
