Referees in Turkey Can Score Goals…

Referees in Turkey

Someone should give this official a playing contract, he’s pretty good… :)

This story comes from TheOffside blog, and includes a pretty fun retro clip from the late 80′s-early 90′s…

We’ve all seen games when the referee’s decisions have affected the outcome, but rare is the time when the referee’s goal scoring prowess is the difference.

The classic clip above shows the referee netting a goal against the Turkish club Besiktas. As luck would have it, they lost the game 1-0 and finished in second place that season one point away from a championship.

If only they had marked the referee better!
