Former West Ham star Said Benhrama is SLIDE TACKLED by a pitch-invading fan after helping Lyon qualify for Europe... before being escorted to safety by security during celebrations

Former West Ham midfielder Said Benrahma has been tackled by a fan of his new club while celebrating European qualification.

Lyon finished sixth in Ligue 1 after a 2-1 win over Strasbourg on the final day of the season, with former Arsenal man Alexandre Lacazette securing the victory with a penalty six minutes into stoppage time.

After a tough start to the season, the side jumped 12 league places in 20 games to ensure they will be in Europe's secondary competition next season.

The win triggered chaotic scenes at the Groupama Stadium, with fans invading the pitch to celebrate with the players, though one supporter took things a little too far when they collided with an ex-Hammer.
