An unexpected ugly scene marred a weekend game in the Gambian league as an angry coach attacked his own club fan, Foroyaa Sport can report.
The incident happened this past Saturday at the Serrekunda East mini-stadium in a domestic First Division game featuring Gamtel and Banjul United.
The fixture ended in a drab goalless affair. However, what became a tiring duel soon turned interesting, just minutes after end of the encounter as a fan and a coach entangled.
A member of Gamtel’s technical bench who team members refused to identify but is believed to be part of the telecom giants coaching staff, made for a fan as a grappling ensued.
The fan reportedly criticised Gamtel’s formation which, sources say, did not sit well with one of the club’s assistant coaches, who in a fit of anger, attacked the fan.
Supporters at the covered pavilion intercepted as some members of the VIP section intervened to calm the situation, a source tells Foroyaa Sport.
Defending champions Gamtel Football Club have not been immediately available for comments.
