Tianjin footballers attack referee in Beijing match (video)


Members of the Tianjin football team in China were unimpressed with the referee’s decisions during Sunday’s match with rivals Beijing—so they gave chase and physically attacked him.

Head referee He Zhi-biao was chased off the pitch and beaten to the ground by angry players at the final whistle, causing general chaos in the stadium.

China’s football association has disqualified the entire squad after the incident.
