Amid the chaos, Batshuayi, who now plays for Fenerbahce, was seen trying to fly kick a spectator running in his direction.

More shocking scenes saw former QPR and Blackpool player Bright Osayi-Samuel punch a pitch invader in the face and sending the person flying to the turf.

Osayi-Samuel continued his attack on the individual as he threw more punches while the spectator was on the ground.

Fenerbahce won the contest 3-2 with Batshuayi, who was a Chelsea player for six years, scoring the winner on 87 minutes. Former Manchester United midfielder Fred scored their other two goals.

The Fenerbahce players huddled in the middle of the pitch to celebrate but were interrupted when one Trabzonspor supporter made their way onto the grass to goad them.

Stewards chased the individual in response, however, numerous Trabzonspor fans then managed to breach security and head towards the Fenerbahce players in what were ugly scenes.

Batshuayi had his back to an individual heading in his direction with the Belgium international swinging then swinging his foot towards the person.

Despite Batshuayi making contact, the individual continued making a beeline for the tunnel at Papara Park in the Turkish city of Trabzon.

Both teams are expected to feel the force of the Turkish football authorities following the unsavoury scenes.

The result sees Fenerbahce stay in touch with leaders Galatasaray with just two points separating the two sides.

This isn’t the first time a match in Turkey has been plunged into chaos with a number of incidents staining the game.

One of the most shocking incidents this season saw a referee get punched in the face by the president of Turkish club Ankaragucu, an incident resulting in the dismissal of the latter.
