Swiss bad boy ref Busacca in a 'wee' bit more trouble
2009-09-23 - Added by
Swiss referee Massimo Busacca has once again courted controversy after he allegedly urinated on the pitch during a game between Al Gharrafa and Al Khor in Qatar earlier this month.
The highly-respected whistler has already made the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week after the Swiss Football Association slapped him with a three-match ban for, ahem,flicking the bird to fans during a cup match at the weekend.
Busacca apologised for his actions during the game against FC Baden and Young Boys and admitted afterwards that he had just 'lost his cool'.
But he could be in hot water once again, with La Gazzetta Dello Sport claiming that Busacca urinated on the pitch during a game between two of Qatar's biggest clubs on September 12th.
While local observers were said to be wholly unimpressed by the man in black's actions, it appears that he will not be punished after he apologised to Qatari football administrators after the game, citing health reasons.
Busacca, who is considered one of the best referees in world football, was the official during last season's UEFA Champions League final in Rome as Barcelona triumphed 2-0 over Manchester United.
It seems the world of football refereeing may have found its answer to Craig Bellamy!
