The fight behind closed doors

Apparently a little exhibition game between the Chelsea reserves and a team from Qatar, Al-Ahli, turned into a massive brawl and was abandoned 35 minutes in.

The EPL club is trying to keep this as quiet as possible, but get a load of these reported details.
Chelsea's players were reportedly assaulted with karate kicks, knee-high tackles and had their hair pulled out and eyes gouged.
Yikes!

Word is an FA investigation is under way, though the story leads us to believe the visitors were the instigators.

The club is making no comment, but I think it's safe to say Al-Ahli won't be invited to anyone's training grounds anytime soon...
