In a crazy scene from the Romanian league, two Steaua Bucharest players suffered serious injuries after being attacked by fans during their ill-tempered league match in Ploiesti, which was abandoned just before halftime.

Defender George Galamaz, capped four times by Romania, sustained a serious facial injury after a Petrolul fan invaded the pitch and punched him in the latter stages of the first half of the mid-table clash.

The Ploiesti-based club’s supporter then started walking towards other players. He clashed with Novak Martinovic who kicked him and wrestled him to the ground where the supporter was kicked again before security guards led him away. He ran onto the field after being angered by the referee’s decision to award Steaua a dubious penalty with the visitors ahead 1-0 at the time.

Steaua’s Serbian defender Martinovic and keeper Razvan Stanca were sent off for attacking the fan with Martinovic using a karate style kick while several other players also kicked the trouble-maker. The match was resumed several minutes after the incident with Steaua going 2-0 ahead.

However, reserve keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu suffered severe burns after he was hit by a firework, thrown from the stands, forcing the match to be abandoned after a half-hour delay. The Romanian Football Federation could now award Steaua a 3-0 victory.
