VIDEO: Player kicks ref in Italian match, ref stares him down

Moment of madness mars lower league game between Castel San Niccolò and Fortis Arezzo.

The Terza Categoria match between Castel San Niccolò and Fortis Arezzo descended into farce when the player who’d received his marching orders lashed out violently at the ref once his back was turned.
