Former referee Claudio Gavillucci has been ‘dismissed via text message’ and tells his colleagues that a consistent mechanism is not assured, confirmed himself.
In his latest book labeled: ‘The Man in Black. The truth of an uncomfortable referee,’ Gavilucci points out to the Italian Referees’ Association (AIA). He oversaw 50 matches in Serie A and another 74 in Italian Football’s second tier.
“I wrote my book after AIA rejected me in a text message,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I decided to get to the bottom of the case, to understand whether there were the technical reasons behind that decision.”
“I’ve learned a number of crucial things like reasons for discrimination. I wrote it for my job’s sake, and for my passion for football.”
“I noticed the inability to speak up, and the desire to hide everything. I place my hand over the flame to my bosses, who are not, sadly, covered by a straightforward program and who don’t function as they should.”
“Truthful man is the one who has a truthful life.”
