Referee Joao Ferreira refuses to officiate Beira-Mar-Sporting Lisbon league match

The Portuguese Football Referees Association (APAF) has announced that referee Joao Ferreira has refused to officiate Sunday's league match between Beira-Mar and Sporting Lisbon.

The decision comes just hours after Sporting called a news conference to strongly criticise the way officials have acted in the club's matches and announce suggestions to improve refereeing in the country.

The story is too old to be commented.
