MALAGA, Spain (AP) - A regional division Spanish football club says one of its players has been hospitalized after being stabbed by a spectator following a match.

Spokesman Salvador Ferrer of football club Alhaurín de la Torre tells The Associated Press that the attack occurred after Sunday’s match between the club’s B-team playing away at rival El Palo.

Ferrer says the player - whose name was not released - was stabbed on the pitch after the end of the game won by El Palo.

Ferrer says the police are investigating.
