Florentin Pogba, the elder brother of Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, was attacked by angry Genclerbirligi team-mates after abruptly walking off the pitch on Sunday and leaving his side a man down in the Turkish Super League.
Dogan news agency and Fanatik sports daily reports that Pogba was confronted in the changing room by several team-mates after the 1-0 league defeat at home to Antalyaspor.
According to the newspapers, security officers and club officials reportedly had to intervene to take the defender to safety.
The 27-year-old removed his shirt and stormed off the pitch in the 88th minute with his team down a goal after an argument with a team-mate.
Genclerbirligi had already made their three substitutions, forcing the home side to finish the match with just 10 men.
The result means that Genclerbirligi are now occupying the 19th position on Turkish topflight league table with 30 points from 32 games.
Pogba signed an 18-month contract with the Ankara-based club in January after spending most of his career at French club, Saint-Etienne.
