Roberto Rosetti Named Top World Referee for 2008 by IFFHS

Sports - November 28, 2007

Roberto Rosetti
of Italy was named the International Federation of Football History and Statistics Top Referee for 2008. He continues in the tradition of excellent Italian men in black.

Pierluigi Collina won this award for six years in a row.

"The IFFHS announced the findings today as Rosetti lead the way with 204 points compared to 126 for second-placed Lubos Michel of Slovakia.

Frank De Bleeckere of Belgium came in third with just 61 points, followed by Germany’s Herbert Fandel on 60. It is a leap up the standings for Rosetti, who a year ago was in fifth place on 55 points."
