Hamburg star Toni Leistner jumps into crowd and clashes with opposition fan

Hamburg star Toni Leistner could find himself in hot water after jumping into the crowd to confront a Dynamo Dresden fan this evening.

The former QPR star was on the losing side of the 4-1 clash, giving away a late penalty to make matters worse.

Leistner was pitch-side after the clash giving an interview to the media before cutting it short to take matters into his own hands.

The German star leaped over the advertising boards, stormed towards a fan in the stands and put him hands on him.

Leistner first pushed the spectator before grabbing his shirt as he fell to the ground.

Other fans separated the pair before stewards urged the 30-year-old out of the crowd.

It is unclear what was said to spark the tense encounter.

Leinster only recently had his contract terminated by Championship side QPR.

He has returned to Germany to play in his native country, after being born in Dresden.

The incident mirrors that of Tottenham star Eric Dier, who entered the crowd to clash with a Norwich fan after a cup clash earlier this year.

“I was looking for my brother in the stand and there was a guy a couple of rows in front of my brother and he was going like this [makes rude hand gestures] 'f*** you, you’re s***'," Dier explained in the recent Tottenham documentary.

"Two rows in front of my brother.

"That’s where my mother sits you know, that’s where my sister sits, where everyone’s family sits and our parents have to stand there and have someone two rows in front call you a c*** and a f****** son of a b**** and a pr*** and a s*** and this and they think it’s ok.”

Leistner could now face a lengthy ban after his actions following tonight's defeat.
