Craig Bellamy will not be facing further action following his clash with a Manchester United fan.

Craig Bellamy will not be facing further action following his clash with a Manchester United fan.

The supporter was pushed in the face by Bellamy who confronted him after he staged a pitch invasion at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Neither the fan nor the Wales international made a complaint to police about the clash but the supporter will appear in court later this month over the pitch encroachment.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman told Press Association Sport: "We have received no complaints about this incident and are currently not investigating the matter."

Jake Joseph Clarke, 21, of Chorley, Lancashire, will appear before Trafford magistrates on September 30 charged with going on to a playing area without lawful authority or excuse.

He ran from the home supporters' section as Manchester City took the kick-off following Michael Owen's dramatic late winner in United's 4-3 victory.
