There are alot of crazy birmingham fans but this i didnt expect from them.

A man was being held on suspicion of murder last night after an Aston Villa fan was run over following their 5-1 defeat of Birmingham.


The 26-year-old man was “sent flying” by a car — said to be driven by a fan of their Premier League rivals — outside Villa’s ground.


Rival fans traded insults and obscene hand gestures moments before one was left dying in a gutter yesterday.


Birmingham City and Aston Villa supporters clashed outside the Villa Park ground.


As the mayhem erupted a 26-year-old Villa fan was run down by a car, believed to be driven by a Blues supporter.


As he walked along, in a replica kit, witnesses said there was an altercation with the driver of a car heading away from the ground.


A moment later the man was “sent flying” by the car.

Another fan at the Premier League grudge match said: “There were Villa fans singing how Blues were going down.


“Next thing all hell broke loose, an engine revved and a guy was sent flying.

“It all happened so quickly and it was impossible to see if the victim had been one of those winding up the Blues lot. But some Villa and Blues fans hate each other.”


Another witness said: “The guy didn’t stand a chance.

“It looked like he was mown down deliberately.”


Police arrested a 20-year-old driving a VW Golf and were last night questioning him on suspicion of murder.


An ambulance rushed the victim to Birmingham’s City Hospital but doctors could not save him.


The driver was arrested almost immediately but it was unclear last night whether he had halted at the scene or been traced later.

It is believed the incident was captured on CCTV.


The victim had not been named last night as police contacted his relatives.

The two football clubs in Birmingham are bitter rivals and Villa’s win was the biggest for almost 50 years.


City are now perilously close to relegation — languishing third from bottom of the Premier League.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.”


Yesterday, trouble also flared after the Tyne and Wear derby.

Newcastle fans clashed with cops in the city centre following their team’s 2-0 victory over arch-rivals Sunderland at St James’ Park.

Eleven people were arrested.
