Fulham's Konchesky: Prem refs best around!

Fulham fullback Paul Konchesky says the Premier League moaners don't realise how good they have it with the standard of refereeing in England.

Fulham head to Wigan tomorrow still angered over the performance of Dutch ref Bernie Blom in their dramatic 2-1 defeat at Roma in the Europa League.

Konchesky, 28, said: "The decisions he made out there were a disgrace. We wouldn't have seen that in the Premier League.

"Even for a tackle like Erik's - that's just normal in our league and he got a red card. It ruined the game.

"We've got the best referees really. If the ref had given me a yellow card I would have taken it but two red cards killed the game."
