Footballer In Brazil Unleashes Shocking Attack On Ball Boy
Sergio Aguero's lash-out to a fan alleged to have spat in his ear and hurled obscenities on the pitch last night pales in comparison to the disgraceful scenes that occured in a game in Brazil
In the Sunday's Campeonato Sul-Mato-Grossense game between Operaio and Comercial, Operaio player Jefferson Reis jumped on top of a ball boy after he celebrated Comercial's winning goal.
TV cameras captured him unleashing a violent attack on the ball boy, believed to be a Comercial youth player, with Reis repeatedly punching the youngster in the face in a truly disgusting act.
The following clip may be distressing viewing for some:
Players ran over to intervene, with things escalating to the point riot police stepped in. The ball boy was seen with blood pouring from his nose as a result of the assault.
Reis will surely be hit with a hefty punishment for his shocking actions. Being honest, he doesn't deserve to play football again.
The horrible incident is the latest example of chaos ensuing in a match in a Brazil.
Vitoria and Bahia players managed to take things to a whole new level in their match, with so many red cards dished out that the game had to be abandoned - with one team even reduced to just six players.
Any match between the two teams is seen as a local derby - and the rivalry reached extreme heights in the most recent meeting.
Just before the hour mark, a total of seven red cards were brandished to those on the pitch, with two visiting players who weren't even the pitch also given their marching orders following a mass brawl
Brazilian outlet Globoesporte tweeted to say that battered Bahia players were advised to lodge official complaints with the police, while they also claim a goal celebration was the cause of the clashes.
The referee, complying with the laws of the game, abandoned the match, with Bahia automatically awarded a 3-0 victory.
