Burnley and Cardiff City fans involved in shocking fight outside Turf Moor with one man knocked out
Burnley are investigating a post-match incident, which appears to show one fan getting knocked out during a mass brawl outside Turf Moor.
The fight happened outside the stadium following the home side’s 2-0 win on Saturday.
The sickening footage shows a group of people throwing punches on the street as fans tried to avoid the melee.
One man, who is believed to be a Burnley fan, could be seen falling to the floor after being attacked by two people.
Burnley tweeted the following statement on Monday: “Burnley FC is aware of a post-match incident involving two sets of supporters outside Turf Moor after Saturday’s game with Cardiff City.
“In addition, a number of offensive posts have been reported to the club, and we are working with Lancashire Constabulary on both these issues.”
