A SAFA official was ASSAULTED by fans in what is one of the most DISGUSTING acts of violence you’ll ever see on a soccer pitch!

SAFA referee, Lionel Bergman was ASSAULTED by infuriated fans.

This occurred during the crucial ABC Motsepe League match between Upington FC and Real Madrid.

Watch video here:

Bergman awarded a free kick to Madrid which resulted in the match winning goal with 13 minutes to go. What infuriated the fans was the goal which apparently involved a handball that was ‘allowed’ by the match official.

Regardless of whether the official was in the wrong or not, such acts of aggression and violence is unacceptable. Whether against an official, player, coach or any human being, this is simply unacceptable.
