Football players in Indonesia have brutally attacked a referee named Abdul Razak during a league game after awarding a penalty.
The players chased him off the pitch during Peregres Gresik United’s game against Persiwa Wamena in Liga 2.
Persiwa’s players were enraged by the decision and began to chase Razak.
One removed his shirt as he pursued the match official.
Players started shoving the referee and then began throwing punches and kicks at him, according to local media.
Razak is knocked to the ground by a flying kick and is kicked while lying on the turf.
He eventually escapes and runs off the pitch – but, incredibly, he returns to resume the pitch after calm has been restored to continue officiating.
Two Persiwa players were sent off and the awarded-penalty was eventually taken and converted.
Meanwhile, no sanctions have been placed on either club yet as Persiwa remain bottom of the Liga 2 while Gresik are still in the relegation zone.
