Swedish media claims today that Ancelotti have commented Frisk's retirement.
They claim that Ancelotti said that if every referee would retire after any treatment like this we wouldn't have any referees left. He also added that he thought that it wasn't because of this treatment Frisk left but due lack of determiantion.

Thought I'll write it down since it concernes Milan.

I'm happy Frisk left cause he is an attention-seeking wh*re. But it's sad that it had to be this way.

So Ancelotti, if the quotes in the Swedish media are true, claims that the threatening of one's own life and the one of your family is a common thing refs face nowadays?

I hope not... and I am sorry that Frisk had to retire due to some idiots.

I noticed he ain't the most beloved ref at XT ;), but I honestly consider him one of the better refs in Europe, and even though he might have been a bit of self-obsessed (as if the other top refs like Collina, Merk etc aren't), I prefer him to whistle a match of my team rather than the huge number of totally incomptetent ref colleagues in Europe and the rest of the world.

Just thinking back of the WC matches in 02 or e.g. the Russian ref (forgot his name) of Milan vs Depor makes me wish that we had a 100 Frisks, Merks, Collinas and Michels to lead the matches.

Weather you like Frisk or not, the circumstances of his retirement are very very bad for football. :( IF Carletto said what media claims he did, I strongly disagree with him and think that he was insencitive.

I doubt he said that. It's not in his nature to say such a unprofessional thing. He's a classy guy.

I doubt that Ancelotti said that too. That was an insensitive way to say it. I don't like Frisk, but I feel for him.

Preciselly. Frisk is a very good referee and one of the few with any kind of authority (despite looking like an 80s porn star).

This is the second referee who has been forced into retirement by English fans. Urs Meier has apparently quit too. He was a very good ref, and the decision he made against England was the right one. :(
