Angry Fans broke fence and beat players after a suspended match
Football is a sport, but to the fans it’s an entertainment, to the players it’s a job while to club owners is business and legacy and to those who don’t understand it, it’s a game. Sometimes people get involved in meaningless fights in football instead of just embracing a defeat or goalless match.
In Nigeria, the unthinkable happened at General Sani Abacha stadium, when Akwa United was playing against Kano Pillars. The two teams are at the top of NPFL log table, Akwa United is on the first place while Kano Pillars are on the second place. The difference in points between the two teams is one.
