THEO BOOSTEN

  • This is not about him but about his assistant who, in a match Feyenoord - PSV in 1975, head butted a PSV sider. The player had complained to him about a canceled goal. Boosten didn't see it happen and red carded the player, but later after witnesses came forward the assistant was suspended.
  • Frans Derks, another Dutch FIFA ref from that time, tells a story about Boosten. One day Boosten was working in his shop, he had a ladies fashion shop in a place called Hoensbroek, when an Italian entered and asked him the way to the next town. Boosten told him, the Italian left, but seemed to have forgotten his briefcase on the counter. When Boosten couldn't find the man, he opened the briefcase and found it filled with jewelery. No one came back to claim the case, but when a few weeks later Boosten found himself in Turin where he was going to take charge of a match with Juventus, the same man was part of the home team people coming to greet him.
    Juventus won the match, just because they were the better team. Derk's story does not tell what Boosten did with the jewels.
