Ex professional Premier League referee Mark Halsey talks to vgtips.co.uk
He's had battles on two fronts. His treatment for cancer and his troubles with his bosses.
While football fans applauded his return to match refereeing, Halsey was involved in another fight, this time with the man in charge of referees, Mike Riley.
In his enlightening book called 'Added Time' Halsey goes into detail about how his bosses drove him to despair and to the brink of suicide.
He lifts the lid on the pressures associated with refereeing at the highest level and talks to me about his friendship with various players and managers, including Jose Mourinho.
Who are the "bullies and control freaks" that are in charge of refs? Find out by watching this face to face interview with a man who overcame cancer and bullying in the workplace.
