Police and football officials are investigating a video showing Sheffield United striker Oli McBarney marking a Nottingham Forest fan.
United lost on penalties in the second half of the Champions League semi-final, and Forrest fans took to the field after the final whistle to celebrate their victory.
However, the invasion was foiled by a cameraman who suffered a horrific attack on 36-year-old United striker Billy Sharp. The supporter has since been arrested and charged with assault, and will be subject to life imprisonment.
But a new image has surfaced on social media of Sharp, a Scottish international forest supporter, lying on the ground.

Confused, United player Rhian Brewster appeared to be pushed by a fan, who later fell to the ground.
The video shows 25-year-old McBarney trampling on an opposition supporter.
McBarney is currently recovering from a long leg injury, wore a pair of surgical boots, and took to social media to defend himself.
Responding to a post on Twitter, he said: It could be wrong! ‘
McBarney retreats – ‘100’, which indicates an agreement with the version of events.
Neither McCurney nor the club have commented on the matter, and police and the Football Association are investigating.
Nottinghamshire Police Inspector Andy Wright said:
“We have now started an investigation into this incident.
“The person requested has not yet been notified of the incident, but we urge those who witnessed the incident or those who have video footage to come forward so we can fully verify the circumstances.”
“In particular, we ask you to contact the owner of the original recording.”
McBarney was outraged when he attacked a fan on the street last year before he fell – he knocked on the phone and stamped it.
McBarney was arrested one night by police, but the man was warned of the incident, which resulted in black and eye and facial injuries.
