Ex-top football referee Howard Webb reveals how he endures OCDIn his changing room before the 2010 World Cup final in South Africa, referee Howard Webb wasn't comfortable in his blue shirt. Webb kept the condition secret throughout a career that saw him referee the Champions League final and World Cup final in the same year, fearing the harsh world of football would mark him down as mentally unsound.However as I pulled it on, a negative thought invaded my head, my anxiety levels rose and I took the top off again to erase that niggling feeling.Webb said he tried to avoid sending players off, but agreed that that sometimes meant he failed to show the red card in times which he should have done.The 45-year-old Webb is a football analyst and head of refereeing for the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, and says he'd like to land more roles that help to develop refs.Webb kept it from his football employers.
