WATCH: Footballer launches attack on referee after receiving a yellow card

The player had to be subdued but only after a headbutt and swinging a few boxes

Things got out of hand during a Guatemalan football match after Daniel Pedrosa clashed with the referee after a rather innocuous booking.

The player bumps into the ref on his way to the ball, receives a paltry yellow card before launching a vicious attack on the referee. He takes matter into his own hands with a headbutt and a few digs before he can pulled away from the referee.

The game was between Deportico Chicacao and Oberenos in the amateur Guatemalan league.
