The courage to decide

“The best referee is the referee who has the courage to decide, to take difficult, important decisions, so important that they put the referee in a situation where he does get noticed. The best referee is the referee who has this conviction, the one who makes the decisions even when it would be easier not to.”

– Pierluigi Collina,Ā the man whose stare could reduce celebrity soccer players to silence is considered the best refereeĀ in the world, having been named FIFA’s ‘Best Referee of the Year’ six consecutive times. Currently head of UEFA RefereesĀ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierluigi_Collina).
