VIDEO: Watch this crazed Metalist Kharkiv fan attack a linesman

There was a fairly vicious assault on a match official in Ukrainian football last night.

LAST NIGHT’S GAME between FC Metalist Kharkiv and Chernomorets was interrupted by a barely believable pitch invasion which saw a referee’s assistant choked by a fan.

The supporter come out of nowhere and grabbed the linesman by the throat before police and stewards intervened. He wasn’t going down without a fight however, and several men were needed to escort him out of the stadium.
