Forget Ibrahimovic or Keane – is this the maddest pitch brawl ever?

Roy Keane Signing Autographs as Man Utd player

Zlatan was involved in a scrap between Inter Milan and Valencia while the Manchester United hero clashed plenty, but they have nothing on this.

Mass brawls between opposing players should always be something frowned upon in the world of football, but a new video has emerged online showcasing arguably the most brutal dust-up between two teams ever put to film.

In the past plenty of football’s biggest and best have been involved in clashes of a similar, though somewhat less intense, level.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was front-and-centre for one particular clash involving his then-club Inter Milan and their Champions League opponents Valencia.

With the Nerazzurri dumped out of the competition by Los Che, things got ugly after Valencia defender David Navarro landed a punch on Inter stopper Nicolas Burdisso, with chaos ensuing.

Notorious Manchester United bad boy Roy Keane, meanwhile, was also involved in several similarly heated exchanges during his Red Devils glory years, with one attempted punch on Alan Shearer a notable low-light for the Irishman.

But both Keano and Zlatan’s best efforts pale in comparison to this latest fight, however, which represents something of a new low in the modern game.

Though the location of the fixture and the standard of teams involved remains unknown, the incidents are as ugly as they are numerous.

Players are kicked – some while standing, others while on the ground – punches are thrown and clashes are plentiful.

Take a look at the full clip below.

It all adds up to arguably the maddest pitch brawl ever!
