English ref Webb enjoyed Italian job

English ref Howard Webb enjoyed his Italian experience last week.

Webb and his team were in charge for Juventus' Europa League second-leg win over Fiorentina.

He said: "It was a fantastic evening, when I heard the ovation of the audience I did not realise it was for me.

"I turned around to see if someone important had entered the field…

"I enjoy these things - to be a referee is a passion, but without the co-operation of the players, fans and journalists, it becomes all the more difficult.

"It is important to understand the difficulties of a referee, we are humans and make mistakes.

"Would I like to referee in Serie A? It's a difficult League and therefore challenging, but it would be a good experience for me."
