UEFA Cup Refwatch: City In French Hands At Aalborg

UEFA Cup Refwatch: City In French Hands At Aalborg



Stéphane Lannoy of La France will be overseeing Manchester City's UEFA Cup destiny in Denmark...

UEFA have just released the official's list for the do or die tie and it reads as follows...

Referee: Stéphane Lannoy (FRA)

Assistant referee:
Frédéric Cano (FRA) Laurent, André Ugo (FRA)

Fourth official: Antony Gautier (FRA)

UEFA Delegate: Michail Kassabov (BUL)

UEFA Referee observer:
Jean Lemmer (LUX)

"...Knowing the French people as I do, I expect a calm, measured and tactful approach to the game....ahem." - JB

Meanwhile, the excellent WorldReferee.Com gives us the low down on Monsieur Lannoy:

**Click Here: Info courtesy WorldReferee.Com**

'French referee Stephane Lannoy is a French federation referee since 1998. Lannoy used to play football until he was 20, didn't think he was good enough to become a professional and turned to refereeing instead. Something he had been doing already, while playing.

Lannoy is a Premier Development referee which means he has a chance to move up to become an Elite ref in the near future.

International matches

Three matches in the U21 European Championships in the Netherlands, a qualifier for the UEFA Cup in 2006 and one in 2007, one EUFA Cup match in 2006 and then suddenly a group stage match in the 2007 Champions League. His first. All this within a year, so this must be a referee with a bright international future.

Euro 2008... came a bit too early for him, he was there though, albeit as 4th official.

Beijing 2008

Lannoy was selected for Beijing.

2010 World Cup...

On October 24th 2008, FIFA announced Lannoy is on the provisional list of referees for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.'

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CARL RAMSBOTTOM APPEAL:

On 27 November 2008, Carl travelled over to Germany to watch his beloved side play Schalke in the UEFA Cup, however due to a tragic incident at a German train station, Carl suffered life threatening injuries.

Due to this horrendous incident, Carl ended up in a coma for three weeks. He is currently in a rehabilitation unit in Germany while his family remain by his bedside.

The family are hopeful that Carl might be in a position to be repatriated to a rehab unit within the United Kingdom, hopefully sometime this month.

What's his hair like? It will have to be something special to beat the ref in the first leg.
