What a cool ref! Love how he just claims that referees are fans too!

People need something to complain about, no league games atm so the media is digging through anything they can find, and some idiots eat it all up....

What's the big deal. It is hardly like it'll massively affect his job or impartiality. The guy wants a picture of him at work with a player who will be remembered as an all time great, for sure. He'll show that photo and tell the story to his great grandkids in 25 years and they will love it. Good for him. Football should be inclusive and inspiring.

Did I miss the part where the ref gave Messi/Argentina a load of ridiculous refereeing decisions or is this exactly what it looks like? A f*cking photograph...

All the people who are hating are just being immature or they're just jealous of him getting a photograph with the best player in the world :)
