Nicola Rizzoli


Career

Nicola Rizzoli is active in the Italian Serie A since 2002. In 2007, he received his FIFA badge and in August of that year he started with a Champions League qualifier and after only a year and a half he took charge of a CL group stage match.

Rizzoli is a Premier Development referee, but he will most probably move up to become an Elite ref in the near future.

Well it's half time and despite giving us a pen to even up the harsh one from the 1st leg I'm pretty sure this guy is a muppet.
