Turkish football can be a handful at the best of times, but today, fans witnessed something absolutely horrendous.

In a match between Goztepe and Altay – known as the Izmir derby – in the Turkish second division, a supporter ran onto the pitch with a stick during a break in play unbeknownst to the stewards and players, and hit Altay goalkeeper Ozan Evrim Ozenc over the head.

Following the attack, Ozenc was rushed to hospital after suffering a hemorrhage, but is believed to be conscious.
