AC Milan ultras turn on own fans as shocking footage shows brutal violence during pitch invasion after Serie A title win

AC MILAN ultras turned on their own fans with brutal violence during their Serie A title winning celebrations.

Milan were crowned champions of Italy on Sunday for the first time in 11 years thanks to a 3-0 victory away at Sassuolo.



Many fans took part in a pitch invasion to celebrate – something the Milan ultras seemed to take offence to.

As fans tried to leave the pitch following the invasion, a group standing by the exit began to violently slap and punch people who went past.

The thugs could be seen hitting their fellow supporters with severe force.

Some of those who were struck were hit totally unawares as they tried to celebrate their side's crowning moment.
