Punches were thrown in a rather heated brawl between Liverpool and Ajax youngsters mid-game of the UEFA Youth League match in midweek.
The under 19s faced off in Amsterdam, with the Reds falling to a 3-1 defeat in their group game, but it was at 2-1 when the trouble broke out.
David Kalokoh put Ajax ahead on the night, but this lead to a furious fight among the youth, with the goalscorer and Melkamu Frauendorf clashing.

Liverpool prospect Bobby Clark was dragged away by his teammates after becoming angry at seeing Kalokoh’s coming together with Reds midfielder.
Clark, who had made an appearance in Liverpool’s 9-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth, had charged at Sabir Agougil and pushed the player’s face several times before the rest of the side joined in.
The referee dished out a yellow card to Clark for what happened, but it was felt that it was quite a lenient decision.
The Liverpool youth side scored through Trent Toure Kone-Doherty but goals from Ajax players Jaydon Banel, Gabriel Misehouy, and Kalokoh sealed a comfortable three points for the Dutch club.
Liverpool are made to wait to find out if they can book themselves in the round of 16 following the defeat, with their upcoming game against Napoli a crucial one.
The number 10 Clark said after the game: “When they started going seven, eight, I was hoping I could get on and nick one myself! But obviously, that didn’t happen. It was proper special [and] exciting watching them. Obviously, 9-0 speaks for itself, it was great to watch on the side.”
He continued: “Every day in training I’m just taking it all in and learning off the best. They just help you every day in training, help you learn and improve… I’ve got to be patient and impress the boss in training. Hopefully, if I keep training well and doing what he wants me to do, hopefully there is an opportunity here.”
