LONDON - Referee Howard Webb has admitted that the World Cup final left him ‘physically and emotionally drained’.
“It was the most difficult two hours of my career. I am physically and emotionally drained but FIFA have been very supportive - not just about the final but our performances throughout the whole tournament,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter said: “In football we have to live with the errors of players and referees.
“It’s not up to me to judge the performances of the officials. I can only say it was a very hard task that the officials had. It was not easy, really not easy and they were really not helped in this task.
The final was not exactly what I expected in terms of fair play. But the side that played football won.” (ANI)
