Al-Hilal won 2-0 at the home of their rivals, infuriating the local support...and when Degenek came close to the sidelines, he was showered with a rain of bottles and shoes being flung at him.

But as photographers dodged for cover, Degenek just stood tall in the face off the onslaught and didn't flinch for a second until he was led away by the referee for his own safety.

It was Degenek's fourth game for his new side since making the surprise switch from Red Star Belgrade during the Asian Cup.

Al-Hilal haven't lost a game since the 24 year old defender joined them and currently sit top of the ladder, nine points clear of second placed Al-Nassr.
