Florentin Pogba, the older brother of Manchester United star Paul, was attacked by his Genclerbirligi team-mates after he stormed off the pitch in their 1-0 loss to Antalyspor on Sunday. The Frenchman was said to have had an argument with a team-mate before storming off in anger, leaving his team to finish the match with 10 men.
The 27-year-old was confronted in the changing room by several team-mates after the match. Security officers and club officials reportedly had to intervene to usher Pogba to safety.
Genclerbirligi had already made their three substitutions, before the incident happened happened in the 88th minute. The loss means the Ankara club are almost certain to be relegated from the Turkish top flight with five points between them and safety and just two matches of the season remaining.
Pogba signed an 18-month contract with the Ankara-based club in January after spending most of his career at Saint-Etienne.
