What happened to Anthony Taylor?
Manchester-born Taylor and his family were abused by fans and had a chair thrown at them after a heated match which ended in a fiery Jose Mourinho outburst.
A tempestuous win on penalties and heated comments by Mourinho who branded Taylor “f***ing disgrace” was the cause for the angry fans confronting Taylor and his family.
Roma fans were angry with Taylor after a total of 13 yellow cards were issued to players including one to Mourinho.
Tempers flared after the Europa League final with an Italian supporter being arrested by Hungarian police on suspicion of the attack on Taylor.
Taylor and his family had to be ushered to safety at Budapest airport after he was cornered by roughly 100 angry football fans.
During the scary incident, airport security staff attempted to keep a barrier to protect Taylor and his family.
During one point various items were thrown during the chaotic scene which included a chair.
The professional body responsible for UK refereeing known as The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) called the incident both “unjustified and abhorent”.
The statement read: “PGMOL is aware of videos circulating on social media showing Anthony Taylor and his family being harassed and abused at Budapest Airport.
“We are appalled at the unjustified and abhorrent abuse directed at Anthony and his family as he tries to make his way home from refereeing the UEFA Europa League final.
“We will continue to provide our full support to Anthony and his family.”
Taylor did appear visibly shaken during the airport ordeal but fortunately looked much calmer as he was spotted with his wife enjoying the sunshine. More
