The top match in Peru’s first division this weekend was suspended in the 82nd minute after the home team manager decided a missed offside call was enough reason to go strangle a match official.
Melgar and Universitario were tied at 2 when the linesman judged a Melgar player’s run to be just offside, wasting a clear goal-scoring opportunity. The entire Melgar bench jumped up to confront the official, but team manager Franco Navarro took things a bit too far.
Pretending he is Kane (if you don’t know Kane, we feel sorry for you, now click the link), Navarro went straight for the referee’s throat before being wrested away by teammates. Riot police were actually called on to remove Navarro from the scene, and moments later the referee decided to call the game off.
Needless to say, Navarro now faces a hefty punishment from both the league and the authorities.
