Bulgarian referee Genov banned after mistakes

Written by: Staff

SOFIA, Mar 14 (Reuters) Bulgarian referee Anton Genov has been banned until the end of April after a string of errors in a domestic premier league match on Sunday, a Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) official said today.

Leaders CSKA Sofia drew 1-1 at Litex Lovech but players and officials from both teams were furious about Genov's decisions.

''He made some huge mistakes during the match so the Referees' Commission decided to ban him until the end of next month,'' a commission official said.

Genov is one of the most reputable referees in the Balkan country and has been in charge of many European club competition games.

Both team's coaches were also been banned by the BFU's Disciplinary Commission for improper conduct during the match.

Litex's Serbian coach Ljupko Petrovich, who won the European Cup with Red Star Belgrade in 1991, got a two-match ban while his compatriot CSKA coach Miodrag Yesic was banned for one game.
