Greek referee Christe Michas took charge of a quarter-final match in the 1972 European Championships and of the controversial 1973 European Cup Winner's Cup final.

final

In 2006 a certain Richard Corbett, English Member of the European Parliament called on UEFA to investigate the 1973 Cup Winner's Cup final won by Milan against Leeds. Because of the corruption scandal that came to light, Corbett found it was time to take a close look at older matches.

Michas made a series of very dubious decisions during the match (ignoring a Milan player handling the ball in the area, sending off a Leeds player but not his opponent, annulling a goal etc) all favoring Milan. In fact he was so bad the neutral audience shouted it was a shame, so bad that UEFA banned him for life after the match, fixing was proved later but Milan still got to keep the Cup.
