Sounds like Steaua Bucharest’s game against Petrolul Ploiesti in the Romanian top flight on Saturday evening was a bit of a feisty affair to say the least, with the game eventually being suspended by the referee after a chain reaction of mindless violence.

Firstly, a Ploiesti fan broke ranks and clocked unsuspecting Steaua defender George Galamaz across the back of the head before promptly getting a well-deserved kicking in the middle of the pitch by Galamaz’s teammates – two of which were sent off for their part in the vigilante justice…

Alternative angle, with a good view of the stewards doing there utmost to stand there and watch as the hoodlum runs about 50-yards to tonk Galamaz…

The match then resumed with Steaua leading 2-0 for all of three minutes until a flare was hurled at their ‘keeper, Ciprian Tatarusanu…

…which caused a 20-minute delay, leading the referee to cut his losses and call the whole thing off.

The fall-out? Romanian news has it that Steaua Bucharest will be awarded the game 3-0, which will come as scant consolation to Galamaz and Tatarusanu who were both rushed to hospital with ‘serious injuries’, while it looks likely that Petrolul Ploiesti will have to play behind closed doors for the next year.

Nice one chaps.

    I’m a steward, and we get told to leave them on the pitch until they come off, because as soon as we go on the pitch, we are the villain and they are the hero, but if we stay off the pitch, they are the villain.

    crazy i know, could have a knife or anything.

    How satifying was it to see that moron getting smashed in the face by one of the players though! Love it. People like him deserve to be crippled.

    George Galamaz was diagnosed with fractured zygomatic(is that the english name?) bone wich demanded surgery and he has temporary lost his hearing.

    I’m not surprised the Romanian FA wanted to endorse putting a moat with crocodiles around their pitches in stadiums…

  7. Patrick says:

    What?! You aren’t even supposed to go chase them?! Shit. That’s messed up. Idiot policy.
