Sunderland striker Darren Bent has revealed that Newcastle fans chanted “Newcastle, Newcastle” while pelting his Land Rover with beer bottles whilst Bent and a friend shopped in Newcastle on Friday evening.
Bent’s best friend’s girlfriend was in the car at the time, and Northumbrian Police were called to the scene , but no arrests were made.
As is Bent’s way, he reported the incident on Twitter, tweeting: “So Newcastle Utd fans attack my car with glass bottles today while I’m in a shop. Then proceed to attack it while best friend’s girl is in there, come on now. Bit too far no?”
