Moroccan referee knocked unconscious by football during match

Posted on 3:07 PM by Sameer Shah

A referee was rushed to hospital with serious head and neck injuries after being struck on the head by a football during a Moroccan league match.

In the 38th minute of the game between league leaders DHJ El Jadida and struggling FUS Rabat, visiting midfielder Fussiste Souiyat unleashed a ferocious 35-yard half volley at goal.

Despite seeming destined for the net, the shot thudded into official Khalid Ramsis near the edge of the area.

The referee immediately fell to the ground unconscious, causing panic among players and fans alike.

Medics were on hand to perform first aid before moving Ramsis to nearby Mohammed V hospital after an on-pitch delay of almost ten minutes.

Later, the injured official was transferred to a medical department in Casablanca.
