Blimey: San Lorenzo players and staff attack referee

Whether it's the team you support or a Sunday league side with mates, we've all been on the receiving end of some diabolical refereeing decisions. The poor sod in black tends to get it wrong a fair bit, but players just have to put up and shut up. That's sport - what the referee decides is final, whether you like it or not. Well, the San Lorenzo players and staff disagree.

During a Copa Libertadores match between Independiente del Valle and San Lorenzo on Thursday night, the referee awarded a controversial penalty right at the end of the match, resulting in Independiente del Valle getting a vital equaliser. Angry San Lorenzo players and staff went ballistic, charging towards the referee and his officials who were being shielded by police.
