This is the sad moment Maccabi Haifa’s pre-season friendly with Lille was halted when protesters stormed the pitch, attacking players.
Pro-Palestinian protesters rushed onto the pitch in the 86th minute and began punching and kicking members of the Maccabi squad.
Aleksander Stanojevic, Maccabi manager, fought off a few but but was eventually punched in the face in the dugout.
Security battled to remove the protesters, while the majority of Maccabi players made for the tunnel.
As UEFA has forbid games in Israel, the match was played in Austria, but unfortunately couldn’t avoid avoid trouble.
