Some of the players reacted aggressively to the ref and the official decided he had seen enough.
One player pushed the ref and he responded by pulling out a yellow card.
But the players continued to chase him and the ref was forced to run off the pitch.
Some staff members also got involved in the chase and the ref ran for cover as headed into the car park.

At one stage a staff member kicks a ball in the direction of the terrified official.
In 2018 a referee was chased by a footballer in Venezuela and wrestled to the ground before being kicked in the head.
But fortunately the ref in Bulgaria managed to get to safety after reacting quickly to the unrest on the pitch.
