Linesman assaults youth player after match

April 29th, 2013

Following the conclusion of a Russian reserve league match between Amkar Perm and Terek, linesman Musa Kadyrov committed an unforgivable act. Right after the final whistle blows, the linesman drops his flag and begins to assault an 18-year-old Amkar defender. After punches and kicks were landed, his teammates swooped in for the rescue.

To add insult to injury, Terek players took the opportunity to create even more chaos.

The attacked defender told the Guardian:

"The ref blew the final whistle and I started walking to our bench, when suddenly someone came from behind, pushed me to the ground and began kicking and punching me," the 18-year-old Amkar player told reporters.

"Terek players then joined the attack. Someone grabbed me by the throat, another hit me … bloodying my face."

The Russian football association has, rightfully, acted quickly and pushed for a lifetime ban for the out of control linesman.
