Reggina president Foti dismisses foreign refs call

Reggina president Lillo Foti has dismissed calls for foreign refs to be introduced to Serie A.

"They could take the pressure off the Italian referees for a bit and take them out of the spotlight, but that isn't a solution," he told Gr Parlamento's La Politca nel Pallone.

"What is needed - as Cesare Gussoni and Pierluigi Collina have pointed out - is for the referees to come in front of all us professionals to ask for help. Arrogance won't resolve anything.

"The calm atmosphere is lacking. It's a difficult situation, but it always has been. We need the referees to relax, but they have been in the gun-sights for two years."
