Football: in Saudi Arabia, a teammate of Benzema receives lashes from a disgruntled spectator

Surreal scene a few moments after the final whistle of the Saudi Arabian Super Cup between Al-Ittihad, Karim Benzema's team, and the winner of the competition Al-Hilal (4-1). The heavy defeat of the French striker and his teammates Thursday evening at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium angered a spectator.

Images relayed by the Marca site first show a verbal exchange between Abderrazak Hamdallah, Al-Ittihad's only scorer, and the individual who came down to the foot of the stand to express his discontent. Hamdallah appears to lose his composure and throws water at the viewer with his plastic water bottle. He responds immediately by delivering two lashes. Hit on the second attempt, the Moroccan international then tried to come to blows with his attacker but he was kept aside by security.

Like Karim Benzema, author of nine goals in the league (as well as seven assists) and once again very discreet on the attacking front on Thursday evening, Al-Ittihad continues to disappoint its supporters in Saudi Arabia. Defeated in the Super Cup final, the team led by Argentinian Marcelo Gallardo only occupies 4th place in the Saudi Pro League, far from the ambitions displayed at the start of the season.
