Angry Kuwaiti Players Attempt To Intimidate Referee, Referee Fights Back…Quite Literally! (Video)

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?

    I think it was justified. Players think they can bully the ref any which way they want.

  2. squiggle says:

    Thumbs up for the goal keeper and the no. 10 for trying to calm their team-mates down.

  3. Ha! says:

    I hope they shit-can that ref as hard as they would to any player who did the same. If he ever ref’s a pro game again it’ll be too soon. What an idiot.

  4. Patrick says:

    Good for that ref! They should “shit-can” that team for several games.

    Ban the players, ban the team, suspend the ref for a few months. I’m on the ref’s side here. It’s not like he couldn’t defend himself, because I bet most refs would want to do that, but only few of them have the balls to do so. He definitely needs to get a suspension for his actions, but he certainly gets my respect as a referee.

  6. Nuno says:

    I don’t think many (or any) refs have endured that in the PL. I can see 4 or 5 players who should’ve got a red for clearly pushing the ref even before he snapped.
    To me, the ref should be suspended for a couple months (he did punch a player), but that team should receive some points deduction and half their team with 10 games suspensions, at least.

    fucking legend. I want him as my sunday league ref

  8. Ref says:

    As a referee that had to referee some horribe children today, who think that they can bully the ref and abuse him if he doesn’t make a decision their way (They claimed a goal going over the line, neither me or assistant could see it, so we didn’t give it) so I really wanted to do what this ref did. He is a legend, and those players were out of order.
