(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 11 – “The championships that are about to begin will be difficult. The referees are preparing themselves with great care, also following principles of ethics, because behind every whistle there is a person who has the right to make mistakes, like footballers “. Thus the president of the Referees Association (Aia), Alfredo Trentalange, at the preseason meeting for referees and assistants of A and B. “It is right to explain our decisions but we would not want this to translate into the need to justify ourselves as if we were a detriment to football. We would like more sporting culture and greater knowledge of the regulations “, he added.
“For me the Serie A referees are important, but also the 14-year-old who goes to referee in the suburbs – underlined the No.1 in The Hague -. Let’s remember that violence against referees is something that hurts to the whole world of football. Then we have a highly evolving women’s refereeing movement, which has achieved results for merits and skills and certainly not for privilege “.
The Sportilia meeting was open to journalists, who were able to attend a training session, with exercises in the Var simulator, and a lesson on the reading of various game dynamics, including fouls and offsides, held by the head of Can, Gianluca Rocchi. “I found the guys athletically very ready – said Rocchi -. We worked a lot from a technical point of view, focusing in particular on the new reading of the offside. We then carried out simulations at the Var, starting from the already positive results of last year, to always improve. even more on this aspect “. (HANDLE).
