Video: Serie A ref knocked out by powerful strike
Italian Official gets smacked upside the head
During yesterday’s 1-1 draw between Lazio and Torni, brilliantly-named referee Massimiliano Saccani found was given an excellent reason to avoid standing between a shooting player and the goal in future. The ref was knocked out by the strike, but after a quick dab with the magic sponge, was able to continue in the game.
Lazio’s left back Aleksandar Kolarov should be grateful that his shot struck the ref’s temple – it looks like it was heading into row Z.
Note: Does anyone know why the ref is dressed in black, and not the day-glo yellow outfits the officials sported in the Milan derby last night?
