You must not forget that the TV cameras in the Uefa game recorded everything,” “Please read Uefa referee One of Robert Rossetti’s statements.
Facts have proved that Sovre’s behavior is neither childish nor unacceptable, but there is a big gesture behind his behavior. That is, the Romanian Football Federation announced that the assistant referee asked for autographs to take humanitarian action to help people with autism. The signed card will be sold at the auction, and all proceeds will be used to help those who need it most.
