Midfielder Chris Brunt may well have expected West Brom fans to be less than happy with his side’s 3-1 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Reading. However, he won’t have expected to have found himself on the receiving end of a coin thrown by a Baggies’ fan.

The incident happened after the game at the Madejski stadium, when Brunt went over to applaud the away end. After being struck by what appeared to be a 50p coin, the Northern Ireland international was understandably shocked and remonstrated with the West Brom fans.

Here’s the video of the incident…

The coin hit Brunt just below the eye so he was very lucky not to endure a far more serious injury. Let’s hope the police find out who the utter gobshite was!

    Awww diddums. Did the poor multi-millionaire get hit by a bit of metal?! I’m surprised he didn’t pocket it and put it toward a lamborgini. And as for the culprit, I recommend decapitating every single fan in the away stand just to be sure the evil do-er gets his commupence. (we cannot tolerate the working class daring to assault a millionaire sports idol; an example must be set!).

      You moron. It’s nothing to do with status. It’s a moronic “fan” who no doubt couldn’t go toe to toe with an athlete or have the intellect to string a sentence together so instead throws a coin. I hope they ban the gimp for life.
