Linesman in Barca shirt replaced

May 17, 2006 19:06 IST

Norway's Ole Hermann Borgan, who posed for newspaper pictures in a Barcelona shirt on Tuesday, has been replaced as linesman for the Champions League final.

Borgan had earlier admitted he was stupid to pose in a Barca shirt the day before officiating in Wednesday's final between the Spanish club and Arsenal at the Stade de France.

European soccer's governing body UEFA said on its website that it had replaced Borgan with his compatriot Arild Sundet, who will fly to Paris from Norway on Wednesday morning.
