Referee breaks player's nose

Germany midfielder Daniel Bierofka had his nose broken by the referee after being hit in the face in a freak accident during a friendly match for his second-division club 1860 Munich.

The 33-year-old was playing for 1860 Munich against VfR Aalen when the referee spread out his arms to stop play early in the second-half, hitting Bierofka in the face.

The midfielder was forced to come off moments later, as his team went on to win 3-0 on Saturday, and was taken to hospital for an x-ray.

"I never thought the referee can injure a player," said 1860 coach Alexander Schmidt.
