Shocking moment ex-Man Utd ace Sabitzer falls to ground after he is struck in face by object in Austria’s loss to Turkey

MARCEL SABITZER fell to the floor after a coin struck his face during Austria’s 2-1 defeat to Turkey.

The former Manchester United star repeatedly had several items thrown in his direction as he went over to take a corner kick in front of a section of Turkey supporters.

Austria failed to make their first quarter-final after a crushing loss against Turkey in Leipzig on Tuesday night.

And for Sabitzer to make matters worse had cups tossed at him during the clash.

But after a smaller item appeared to hit the midfielder he fell to the floor in pain.

Soon after, a number of Turkey players went over to the corner to the Austria captain, before telling the crowd to stop.

Many cups were spotted being cleared off the pitch during the second half of the last 16 clash.

Sabitzer who stars for Borussia Dortmund spent last season on loan at United while he was at Bayern Munich.

This is just one of a number of incidents of crowd trouble at the Euros this summer with Uefa handing out nearly £1m in fines.

Turkey fans were involved in a pre-match brawl with Georgia before the group game in Dortmund.

The Scottish Football Association, meanwhile, were fined £7,640 for two incidents of fans “throwing objects” earlier in the competition.

Now Turkey will see them head into the quarter-final against the Netherlands on Saturday.

A double strike from defender Merih Demiral was enough to see Vincenzo Montella’s side to the last eight at a major tournament for the first time in 16 years.

Demiral’s first goal was the fastest-ever strike in a last-16 clash at the Euros.
