Cristiano Galano is the first player who has received a green card. At the beginning of the season, the second Italian league (Seria B) chose to honor players who show fair play during matches. And Tuesday in the north-west of Italy, there was a historical moment as referee Marco Mainardi decided that Galano got to be part of history. In the 53rd minute, Venice’s was awarded a corner, but Galano admitted that no player of Virtus Entella had touched the ball.
While referees has not been given a green card to show on the field, all those who receive will be documented in the race who will get more green cards at the end of the season.
