Serie A Shocker! Fiorentina & AC Milan play without a referee

Maybe we would be better off without referees? I mean, you rarely have a referee when you play five-a-side with your mates and that (usually) goes off without a hitch.

We got to (briefly see) what a referee-less existence looked like at the highest level on Monday night when Fiorentina vs. AC Milan played for a few moments without an official on the pitch.

When referee Carmine Russo went off injured, the two teams played on before his replacement had time to come on.

Russo was having none of it though as he hobbled back on and stopped the play before his replacement could finally enter.

Fiorentina won the match 2-1.
