After awarding a penalty to opponents Al-Arabi in their recent Kuwaiti Premier League game, a gaggle of incensed Al Nasar players flooded around the referee to harangue, harass and berate the official, presumably in the hope that he’d merely change his mind and play on.
However, this ref was not for turning, oh no. Indeed, as the Al Nasar defenders began to circle the ref, back him into a corner and grab and snatch at him, the man in black/yellow snapped and launched a quick left jab into a player’s face, knocking him on his arse, all the while flashing red cards at whomever he deemed worthy of one.
Then, just to top off his night’s work, the ref had the pleasure of sending a gobby Sheikh to the stands too…
Nicely done that man! Wonder how many Premier League referees have felt like doing that over the years?
