You need to understand that in any European League, it is impossible to imagine a situation where clubs require to remove, assign or in any way trying to interfere in the activities of judges. In Europe it is impossible in principle, it is absolutely impossible. The leaders of the arbitrators interact only with the heads of federations. Clubs, leagues, for judges there is no one. Therefore, Rosetti, responsible for refereeing at UEFA, of course, was strange to learn about what is happening recently with judges in Russia”, – said the source.
The source added that “the Russian championship, football there, watch closely enough and call Yegorov was a reaction to the information that reached Rosetti”.
