Turkish football fans have always had a bad reputation but stabbing the coach during a game is a bit much. Yuksel Yesilova was gesticulating on the touchline during the first-half of the game against Samsunspor when older brother Murat struck.

Eurosport has the latest on what turns out to be a family fued that turned nasty.

The match was immediately suspended and Yesilova was rushed to hospital. His injuries were ruled not to be life-threatening, and he was released from hospital on Tuesday.
Governor Huseyin Aksoy told the Anatolia news agency: "It was discovered that Murat Yesilova, the elder brother of the coach, carried out the assault.
"In his first statement to the police he said he did it because of personal issues."

Thankfully, Croke Park has put up the mirrored plastic on Hill 16. Ahead of the curve lads, ahead of the curve.
