Referee in China Hounded, Chased, and Pushed by Tianjin Players: History

I do not know whether this has anything to do the match on Sunday 26 July 2009, but there is some recent bad history between Bejing and Tianjin football teams.

The bad history is at the Chinese Super League level and, as I mentioned, I do not know if this is related to what happened between the Bejing and Tianjin U20 football teams last Sunday.

On 13 June 2009 during a Chinese Super League match, Tianjin's Tan Wangsong “attacked” Beijing goalkeeper Yang Zhi, who was severely injured and had to be carried off the pitch. Tan received a five-match ban and was fined 25,000 yuan (about US$3,600).

On 12 November 2008 during a Chinese Super League match between Beijing Guo'an and Tianjin Kangshifu, a mass brawl on the pitch started after the referee gave a red card (second yellow) to Beijing's defender Zhang Yonghai towards the end of the match.
