West Bromwich Albion fans cannot help but mock Aston Villa following cabbage-gate

Football managers are used to getting verbal abuse from the crowd when things are not going their way, but having a cabbage thrown at them from the stands is a new one to add to the list.

Unfortunately for Steve Bruce, he was the target ahead of Aston Villa’s Championship clash against Preston North End on home soil, and West Bromwich Albion fans could not help but mock the situation.

Villa supporters have been frustrated with the club given that they have won just three of their 11 league matches this term, and Bruce has taken the brunt of the criticism.

On Tuesday, the Midlands outfit squandered a 2-0 lead and eventually rescued a 3-3 draw thanks to Yannick Bolasie’s 90th-minute goal.

After the final whistle, Bruce confirmed to the media that a cabbage was thrown at him by a fan before kick-off.

On Twitter, supporters of Villa’s Midlands rivals West Brom were quick to take advantage of the bizarre story.
