Kuipers needs to alter his style

Björn Kuipers will be in charge of his third European final tonight, having officiated in the 2011 Supercopa (Barcelona 2-0 Porto) and the 2013 Europa League (Chelsea 2-1 Benfica). The Dutch referee could well be facing a physically tough battle between the sides and that’s where he needs to be careful – he’s prone to not showing cards, but not giving one early where it’s deserved would be a mistake.

The other day I said he doesn’t inspire much confidence in me, because of his tendency to talk his way through the game and show few cards in the first half. Today he’s got the most important match of his career, after the Confederations Cup final between Brazil and Spain.

There he showed little disciplinary ability. For this game he should change his style, because both teams have similar ideas. Equally, both sides understand the rules in the same way when appealing for fouls. Kuipers needs to be dynamic. He is well considered by his bosses and he always tries to make the game run smoothly.
