Jetro Willems, who used to represent Newcastle, was punched by one of his own supporters after tempers boiled over at an Eredivisie match.

With Willems’ side 2-0 down against Heerenveen on Sunday, supporters started to get angry as a toxic atmosphere from the stands spilled onto the pitch.

In the 80th minute of the game, fans invaded the pitch as stewards struggled to restrain them, leading to the match being suspended.

Among a number of Groningen players, Willems went over to their supporters to try and calm the situation down, but the attempts at making the peace saw a fan punch him in the face.

The supporter was arrested for the incident, and thankfully, the left-back did not appear to be seriously hurt.

With chaos kicking off in the stands, the referee decided to send the teams back to their dressing rooms with fears growing that the match would be suspended altogether.

However the final ten minutes of the match were able to be completed with Groningen unable to change the 2-0 scoreline.
