Abruptly failed to return for the new Premier League season.

There were all sorts of jokes as EPL referee Bobby Madley quit "due to a change in his personal circumstances"
QUIT: Official

Rumours are abound after Premier League referee Bobby Madley abruptly retired from the game and failed to return for the new season.

In a statement, the Professional Game Match Officials said of the 32-year-old:

Bobby Madley is no longer employed by PGMOL.

We understand that he has decided to relocate due to a change in his personal circumstances.

There has since been much speculation on social media after constant referrals in the press to a mysterious “social media video” that may be at the heart of this issue but has yet to be confirmed.

And there are already Bobby Madley quit jokes on Twitter:
