Allardyce wants competition among refs

Published 1 Comments

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce wants more professional referees in the Barclays Premier League to provide more competition for matches.

Allardyce was upset with the consistency shown by Anthony Taylor during his side's 2-1 defeat at home to Everton last weekend where he saw both striker Carlton Cole and Toffees' midfielder Darron Gibson dismissed. Both red cards have since been rescinded but Allardyce said the introduction of more trained officials can improve the standard in England.

"There's not enough referees," he said. "If there's more referees, there's more competition. If there's more competition there's more competition for your game."
