A Colombian lawyer, Aurelio Jimenez, is suing FIFA for the terrible performance of referees at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
And how much is Jimenez fighting for? Just the paltry sum of 1 billion euros.
Jimenez, 74, is suing FIFA for causing him emotional and physical distress, thanks to the poor officiating.
“I decided to sue FIFA in the Colombian judiciary system because in the past world soccer championship in Brazil, there were many wrongdoings related to referees who damaged many countries and their selections, among them the Colombia team,” Jimenez continued.
“Moreover, FIFA’s referees caused big moral damages and distress to Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, England, Uruguay, Mexico and Costa Rica.”
Jimenez has said he’d use the money to help Colombian kids. Go Jimenez!
