A man has admitted assaulting Manchester United defender Chris Smalling during a Premier League match at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.
Gary Cooper, 30, ran onto the pitch about 70 minutes into the 10 March match, which Arsenal won 2-0.
Cooper, of Styventon Place, Chertsey, Surrey, changed his plea to guilty to an assault charge on Thursday.
Magistrates fined him £235, ordered him to pay £100 compensation and he was given 120 hours unpaid work.
He had previously admitted invading the pitch and also received a football banning order for four years at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.
