Iranian Referee takes beating for showing Yellow Card

- Player makes foul.
– Referee awards free kick.
– Player shows dissent.
– Referee shows yellow card.
– Referee gets savagely beaten on pitch by players, staff and fans.

Welcome to Iranian Football!

Just check out this shocking video from a clash between Chooka Talesh and Shahrdari Dezfool at the weekend, in which the referee showed a second yellow card, only to have it ripped from his grasp.

Then what followed was horrific; including the referee taking a good kicking before being hounded out of the stadium by pretty much everyone in attendance.

If you think that incidents like this were a one-off in the Iranian league, then think again. Take a look at the video we put up last week in which two players were banned from playing football in Iran for life, simply for ‘celebrating a goal to intimately’.

Got something to say?
