SK Slavia Prague’s 3-1 Czech League win over FK Pribram match became controvertial as two drunk referees have been suspended immediately after farcical scenes.
The tumbling fourth official and the assistant referee in that match were Marek Pilny and Jiri Jech respectively. According to The Sun allegations are Jiri Jech even peed on the field when the match was going on. As a result, their licences have been withdrawn and further actions might also be taken.
“Pilny was visibly drunk from the beginning of the game
“He struggled for balance by the touchline, he fell, at times he ran with the linesman copying his movements.
“After 10 minutes he had to be guarded by a bodyguard, and at half-time Pilny left for the changing rooms and never came back.” – Was the Czech FA’s frank statement.
YouTube video clips proved the claims and allegations as the video made it clear that Pilny was looking dizzy and was even struggling to walk straight down the line at times, which almost led to a collision with club officials.
FA head Miroslav Pelta said of the two officials: “They were not tipsy, they were drunk. They don’t exist for us any more.”
He also revealed brought one fact into light that the referee and the two linesmen would be suspended for the remainder of this season.
The FA quoted about Jech – “under the influence of alcohol and allegedly even peed during the game”.
