This is soccer, not ice hockey. Officials have no specific authority under the LOTG to physically intervene to break-up an altercation. I don't know the situation in other parts of the world, but here we are advised to keep out of the melee and observe to determine what action will be taken later. Any control of the situation should be done in a non-physical manner, eg by directing players away from the melee, using the whistle (appropriately) etc. Anyway, that's the advice I would pass along to others. Cheers, David.
