Layec

2009-01-03

A manager from Brittany and French referee of the year in 2002 and 2003, Layec officiates in the French Premier League since 1998 and got his FIFA badge in 2002. He is a UEFA Elite Category referee.

career
Looking at his palmares you can see his career is not a normal one. Most European referees start with qualifiers and under 17 matches, some even start in the intertoto and never get any further. Layec however in his first year took charge of a first round UEFA Cup match. His first Champions League proper match was in 2004. In 2007 he reached the quarter-finals of the CL and the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup.
His career seems to have be stalled a bit since then.

cards
His card average seems a bit high, almost reaching 5 yellows per match.
