The chairman of the football club of a linesman who died after being attacked by youth players has said that it is a "tragedy" for Dutch football.
Speaking to Dutch broadcaster NOS, Marcel Oost, chairman of Buitenboys, said:
You can't believe this could happen. That kids of 15 or 16 are playing football, you come to watch and see something like that.
He was glad to be a part of this club and proud of his son. This not just a tragedy for Almere and our club, but for Dutch football in general. This can't happen on the football field.
