A referee had his jaw broken after a player punched him for issuing a second yellow card at a match yesterday.
Police and the Auckland Football Federation are both investigating the incident which occurred at a game at Massey Park in Mangere between Manukau City and Tauranga City.
A Manukau City player allegedly punched the referee in the jaw for being given his second yellow card, which automatically becomes a red card, said chief executive of the federation, David Parker.
The player has been suspended.
