Colombia’s soccer federation has ruled out bringing
in referees from abroad following a controversial start to the playoff stage of this year’s Copa Mustang 1 tournament.
“We’ve totally ruled out the idea of hiring foreign
referees,” said Colombian Football Federation (FCF) president
The penalty was widely described as non-existent by
Pimentel, a former Millonarios player, said he would pull
Chico out of the championship and field a youth side if his
demands were not met.
Cucuta also demanded foreign referees after coach Jorge Luis
Pinto was sent off in the 1-1 draw with Envigado. (Reuters)
