Football player hit a referee – level 2
The life of a referee in football is not always easy, especially when they give red cards. During a football match in Lebanon, a referee gave a red card to a player who wasn’t happy with the referee’s decision.
The player ran after the referee and tried to hit him. The referee tried to run away and then the coach and other men also attacked him. The referee was really scared and didn’t expect to get out alive but a soldier who was at the match helped him. After this horrible experience the referee decided to quit his job.
Interesting words: referee (person who make sure that the rules of a game are followed), quit (stop doing something).
