Shameful, regrettable, unusual, grotesque… there are no adjectives to describe what happened this Monday afternoon at the Eryaman Stadyum stadium in Ankara (Turkey).
At the end of Ankaragücü – Rizesporafter the visitors tied in the 97th minute, the local president, Faruk Kocahas gone down to the field of play to attack the referee.
The leader punched the referee Umut Meler which has left him a black eye. Furthermore, when he fell, he was kicked to the ground.
Rizespor has been in charge of escorting the team to the locker room tunnel after what happened at the end of a match that saw two expulsions. A severe sanction is expected for the president.
