The player who was cautioned and then attacked me, I sent him off the field after another foul. Then the blows began to beat him and the referee fell to the ground. With a crushed larynx, the man is taken to the university hospital.The perpetrator, a Syrian (23 y/o) without current residence permit, jumps into his car, flees, but is quickly caught.
