Confessions of an assistant referee who returns his flag

Spectators left the Tuilière stadium on Friday saying that not much had happened between Lausanne-Sport and FC Basel (0-0). Didier Dubrit, one of referee Luca Cibelli’s two assistants, will on the contrary remember a busy evening. Charged with interventions, first of all, since his inspection revealed a hole in the nets of one of the two cages before kick-off and he canceled two goals – one per team, no jealousy. Charged with emotions, above all, because the final whistle sent him into retirement after 119 Super League matches.

While the players greeted each other and the ultras folded their banners, the 34-year-old Vaudois rushed towards the few dozen relatives who had come to support him for the occasion. A selfie and a round of applause later, he ran back to the locker room where LS and FC Basel jerseys with “Dubrit” flocking were waiting for him. Nice recognition when we have only ever played an anonymous role, surveying a strip of land 52 meters long by 1 meter wide, on the fringes of the playing field as well as the notoriety that it can provide to some.
