Madley wants to resume career in Norway

Bobby Madley has said he wants to restart his refereeing career in Norway.

Madley, 33, was sacked by the Premier League back in August and now wants to resume his refereeing career elsewhere. 

Speaking to 'NRK', he remarked: "I would love to referee in Eliteserien (Norway's top flight) at some point, but I have to work hard and prove myself on the pitch. It's only fair.

"I have an agreement with the Premier League, which means I cannot discuss the details of it [departure]. But I can say that much of which was written in the media was false, and that was disappointing and hurtful."

Terje Hauge, a referee supervisor in Norway, has a plan to have Madley in place as a referee before the 2019 season begins in March. 

Madley continued: "My preparation has already started (to be a referee in Norway).

"I have seen many Elites series games on television in recent months, and the standard of the referees is very high. Norway has more referees who I'm sure could be referees in the Premier League.

"I'm sure all Norwegian referees want to referee in the Elite series. But, just because I was a referee in the Premier League, does not make me better than any other referee in Norway and it gives me no right to go to the top level."
