Bobby Madley whistles Premier League game four years after being fired

Bobby Madley will whistle a Premier League game for the first time in four years on Saturday after losing his job in 2018 over a controversial video.

Madley was fired by the refereeing body Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) after sending a video mocking a disabled person to a friend. He returned to English football in 2020, taking charge of matches at the League One and League Two levels and has led 10 matches in the Championship this season. The 37-year-old will take charge of Brentford’s home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to a list of officials for the weekend games on the Premier League’s website.

Madley’s brother Andy, who is also a referee, will lead Brighton & Hove Albion’s home game against Chelsea that same day.
