Huzu steps down as head of referees

Aron Huzu stated on Wednesday evening for Gsp TV that he has resigned from the leadership of the Central Commission of Referees (CCA), being displeased with the fact that the members of the Romanian Football Federation’s Executive Committee have decided that to use foreign referees for the League I games. ‘I didn’t understand the clubs’ reaction. During these three rounds we’ve won some referees. I cannot violate my principles. I looked in the mirror and the person looking back at me seemed to say that I’d better pack my bags and go. I hope that my replacement will have the same goals that I had. Vasile Avram could be the next leader of the CCA,’ Huzu stated according to gsp.ro. Huzu pointed out that he is yet to file his resignation within the FRF, but that he will ask his son to e-mail it to the president of the FRF. Huzu was appointed president of the CCA on April 29, shortly after former CCA president Gheorghe Constantin was arrested for being involved in the corruption row that shook the world of Romanian football. Besides Huzu, the CCA vice president, Dan Lazarescu, also announced his intention to resign.


FRF named ex referee Vasile Avram to replace Huzu. Avram will remain in the position until April next year, when the commission is scheduled to elect new leaders.


It was established during the Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday that a League I game can be led by foreign referees only if both teams demand it. FRF President Mircea Sandu stated on Wednesday during a press conference that six clubs (namely Dinamo, Steaua, Rapid, FC Vaslui, Universitatea Craiova and FC Timisoara) have asked for foreign referees, while the other 12 clubs want Romanian referees to be used for the League I games. The clubs can ask the CCA for foreign referees 7 days before a game. All of the Round 4 games of League I will be led by Romanian referees.
