he has been charged with going on to a playing area without lawful
authority or excuse and will appear at Trafford Magistrates' Court on
September 30.

The crowd watched as a male fan ran on to the pitch from the United home end after Michael Owen's late goal.

Bellamy marched towards the man and pushed him in the face before the fan was led away by stewards.

The Football Association said it was still considering what action, if any, to take against Bellamy.

Police will also investigate a coin-throwing attack on City
