Webb Abuse – Priceless

KRAKOW TOURS – In an exclusive interview with Przeglad Sportowy this week, English football referee Howard Webb expressed his hope to be refereeing in Poland at Euro 2012 despite becoming something of a hate figure for a decision he made at the last Euro championships.

Webb awarded a controversial penalty to Austria which ultimately eliminated the Poles and had PM Tusk spitting,

“I wanted to kill him!”

Reminded of this, Webb replied diplomatically,

“I heard about that. It means your PM is very interested in football, that he cares about the team. That’s good .”

Asked if he now considered the decision unjust, he elaborated,

“My interpretation of that event was as it was. As far as the Poles are concerned, I don’t think it’s me they hate, rather they hate the decision. I assure you I have no problem with the Poles. I hope I’ll meet you in two years at Euro 2012. Or even earlier. It’s not impossible I may officiate at a friendly in Poland before then.”
