The Boss

2011-09-08

Somewhere in Belgium, leaning against Brussels, right on top of the great language divide, is a small town called Wemmel, where former international FIFA (and World Cup) referee Marcel van Langenhove is the Boss. Not only is he the mayor, but there is also a stadium named after him.

Van Langenhove was a national referee for 17 years and an international one for 14 years.
Next to being a mayor he also takes care of vising international referees for his team Anderlecht. He was voted Belgian referee of the year 8 times in a row.
One of his mottos (as a referee and a politician) is: to talk is to prevent.
