PANO - All referees at the V League 2012 will be equipped with the latest walkie-talkies to easily communicate with each other to avoid shortcomings while refereeing matches.
Addressing a press conference on April 20 th , Mr. Duong Vu Lam, Head of the Referee Panel, said that the new tools performed effectively in a match between B.Binh Duong and HAGL Club in spite of the rain at that match. 16 sets of the walkie-talkies are funded by Mr. Doan Nguyen Duc, the HAGL’s boss, Lam added.
The new type of “handie-takies” is more useful than the present kind as they can record sounds from both players and referees during a match.
Mr. Duong Vu Lam affirmed that from the 15 th round, all referees will use the walkie-talkies and this would help them make exact decisions to provide for the tournament’s jury whenever a match causes some controversies, especially over a players’ foul words. Translated by Van Hieu
