Brizio Carter named new chairman of Mexican referees

After the conflicts between referees of Liga MX and Héctor González Iñárritu, the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) announced his replacement with Arturo Brizio Carter (photo) to, once and for all, end the problems of Mexican refereeing. The decision came after Iñárritu and the Mexican Association of Referees (AMA) had a public dispute and had its peak when the TAS revoked the suspensions of a year to Enrique Triverio and Pablo Aguilar, players of Toluca and America. "We regret that the Referees Committee of the FMF, through its president Héctor González Iñárritu, agreed that the regulation should not be applied and that by its omission avoiding to set a precedent before the acts of violence against the referees", published AMA at the time when this issue was raised in May. Since then, the frictions between the referees and their head in the FMF did not end, until this month, when it was announced the change at the helm. Brizio Carter was active as referee in Mexican football between 1983 and 1998. He participated in two FIFA World Cups: USA 1994 and France 1998. In his first words as the new chairman of the FMF Referees Committee, Arturo Brizio made it clear that he arrives with the best willingness to contribute to the growth of the Mexican football refereeing: "It is a very nice challenge, I have been part of refereeing since I was a kid and this is a special moment in Mexican football. There is a lot of work to be done in refereeing and that is why I take on this challenge”. For his part, Decio de María, FMF president, was in charge of giving the news and sending a message to the ancestor Iñárritu: "We must build a project together, it is not a matter of people, but of concepts, to make a clear definition of the Mexican refereeing".
