Benoît Millot on the sound system for referees: “Helping to shed light on these relationships on the ground”
Benoit Millot (Lyon-Nantes refereeabout the sound system of the referees, at the microphone of Prime Video) “I don’t know if we (the refereeing body) had a good game. If we were in the shadows, to leave the players in the light as much as possible, it’s because we did our job well. (On the Nantes goal) It started strong with a possibility of offside, but the goal is valid and has therefore been validated. In the protocol, all goals scored are verified. The whole sequence is watched from the recovery of the ball.
“This type of thing must be able to become recurrent, for France to be able to export”
(On his communication with the players) You have to realize the multiplicity of communications in the field. This type of experience sheds light on these relationships on the ground, the referees’ passion for the game. They don’t come down from the planet Mars at the weekend to referee. It is necessary that this type of thing can become recurrent, that France can be an exporter. We are in favor of it.
(On a possible different behavior of the players, knowing that Mr. Millot was equipped with a microphone) Honestly no more than that, maybe they’ll get used to being heard more. This will shed some light on what these field relationships are. »
