Collina is now 45, which is the maximum for Italian referees. The Italian league is deciding whether to make him an exception since hes still the best referee around.

Should they let him stay longer?

One more season, and he should go to the WC2006! it's only one year away anyway!
But I know it won't happen since FIFA won't allow it. He made his last game at international level in the Portugal-Slovakia match!

Having seen the performance of the italian referee in Argentina Tunez, Collina should stay active for another 10 years.


I think that Collina is the best ref in the world and he should continue to please nations across the continent and the world. Let him stay around till he is personally ready to retire.

Why is age such a problem for FIFA?

All that should matter is if the person is able to do his job or not.
