Video: Referee blows for full-time on 80mins
Ref can’t tell the time
In England, teams visiting Old Trafford are familiar with referees who would happily let the match roll on towards 100mins. But in Poland they have precisely the opposite problem. The recent match between Korona Kielce and Belchatow briefly descended into farce when the referee blew the full-time whistle.
After consulting with his assistants and the fourth official in the hope of making it look like a technical issue rather than him being a complete moron, the ref decides he wants to play on after all.
But Belchatow manager Macieg Bartoszek had other idea. With his side trailing 3-1, he fancied his chances of getting the result overturned and the match replayed after a refereeing cock-up over his side’s chances of grabbing two goals in 10 minutes.
Sadly his attempts to rush his players down the tunnel were stopped by the officials!
