Aleckovic suspended for two years

FIFA referee Emir Aleckovic was recently suspended for two years by the Disciplinary Committee of the Bosnian Football Federation and will be removed from the FIFA List. He was found guilty of sending inappropriate text messages to the youth referees that he was mentoring in his home country. In July, Aleckovic was sent home by UEFA from the U-19 Euro 2013 in Lithuania, for "alleged wrongdoings in Bosnia-Herzegovina". Aleckovic, 33, became a FIFA referee in 2010. He was among the six referees selected for the UEFA U-19 Euro tournament, where he was only appointed to one match, France – Georgia.
