An under-14 match between Standard and KRC Genk got out of hand on Saturday. The Limburgers coach had to go to the hospital for treatment.
Standard and KRC Genk were the numbers 1 and 2 in the competition. The people of Liège were already champions, so the match didn’t matter anymore. Things got worse with a score of 3-3 in the final stage.
According to an eyewitness, the referee did not see a clear handball from Standard and let us continue playing. Al Roche scored 4-3 on the counterattack. Some Genk players went for a story from the referee and he was going to make a racist remark.
Lots of people took to the field, even though it basically looked like it was taking the players away. Genk coach Ashraf Hanazz also ran onto the field. “Suddenly I saw how the father of a record player was pushing our players behind my back. He also shouted at them in French. I didn’t understand it, but I told him to leave the children alone, ”says Het Belang van Limburg.
And then things went wrong. “It hit out of nowhere and hit my left eye hard. In the 16 years I’ve been a youth coach, I’ve never experienced anything like this. I think the worst thing is that kids witnessed it.”
Police arrived at the scene with a few vehicles and calm was restored shortly thereafter. The aggressive man ran away, but was soon found. The match has been filmed, so video footage will help frame everything properly.
Genk’s coach filed a complaint with the police and went to the hospital. “At first it was thought to be a fracture or fracture of the eye socket, but according to the CT scan, it turned out to be just a bruise. That is the only good news in this case. My eyes and cheeks are swollen and blue.”
