Leif Sundell

2011-03-25

Allsvenskan referee from 1983 till the end of 2005. Internationally he had a great start taking charge of the final of the 1991 u17 World Cup, often a good sign. Sundell got two matches in the 1996 European Championships.

but
But this century everything changed for the Swedish top referee. Sundell was assigned qualifiers and 1st rounds only, there was even an Intertoto match, the very bottom drawer of European football. Sundell clearly must have lost the trust of UEFA, but he stayed on until his retirement in 2004. We wonder what happened.
