When we have a bit of handbags in the Premier League it always gets blown out of proportion, but if you want to see a proper scuffle you need to head to South America or Turkey. And it was from the latter that the following crazy video is taken. In some weird microcosm of a Middle East crisis, a brawl broke out at the game between Trabzonspor and Sivasspor after after a bad tackle by Egyptian Abdelaziz Aiman on Israeli Pini Balili. This encouraged the Turks to get involved, including those in the stands. Silvasspor’s Mehmet Yildiz was hit in the face by a fan leading the referee to abandon the game.
