Video: Referee chased and attacked by players

Published 2 Comments

A referee was chased and attacked by a group of players during shocking scenes in an amateur match in Saudi Arabia.

It is unclear what the match official did to incense the players so seriously but, the referee was left in real danger as he was set upon by numerous people - some of whom had run over half the length of the field to assault him.

The referee manages to sprint down an opening and into the bowels of the stadium, but not before he receives a number of punches and kicks.

You can watch the sickening incident in the video above, and well done to 101greatgoals for first highlighting these awful scenes.
