German ref sees red over seeing double

A GERMAN referee demanded an identical twin be substituted before he would officiate the match.
In an amateur clash involving TSV Sackenbach, man in black Reinhold Bieberich reportedly refused to allow the second half to kick off after the club brought on identical twins Luke and Felix Termathe – claiming he could not tell the difference between the pair.
As a result Felix was subbed off before the game could continue. Brother Luke was yellow carded but allowed to play – and was then sent off for a second infringement.
After the match it emerged that three years previously ref Bieberich was the victim of an assault following a match – but the case was thrown out of court as the attacker had been an identical twin and it was impossible to prove which twin had carried out the crime.
Sackenbach have launched a lawsuit over the incident.
