Video: Brazilian linesman goes crazy with a spray paint
In Brazil, linesmen now come equipped with a can of spray paint so they can mark the correct distances from free-kicks and ensure that nobody is creeping forward.
This excitable chap thought he’d done his job. But with players standing around the ball at various angles, the ref was unhappy that some players were closer than others.
Trying to get his painting done as efficiently as possible, the lino didn’t really get his distances as accurate as they might be. Which begs the question, what’s the point of him doing it if he’s not going to get the distances right?
