Ref gives angry goalie a Tanning.

A LEAGUE clash in Tanzania was abandoned amid chaos last week when Mwanza United keeper Mahamudu Mburu got in a fight with the ref.

The game spiralled out of control when whistler Zakaria Jacob awarded rivals TMK a dubious penalty with the teams locked at 1-1. Raging United players surrounded the official who responded to a kick from Mburu in combative style by flooring the keeper.

The ref was quite happy to continue after flashing a red card at Mburu.

However, United's players stormed off the pitch in protest at their goalie being banjoed and the match had to be scrapped.
