Howard Webb retire from Refereeing

Howard Webb has retired from refereeing to take up the role of Technical Director of Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

The 43-year-old, a former policeman, built up a reputation as one of the best officials in the game.
He has taken charge of some of the biggest matches in the Premier League over the course of his 25-year career, as well as an FA Cup final, League Cup final and Community Shield.
In 2010, he became the first person to referee the finals of both the UEFA Champions League and the World Cup.
He recently officiated at the 2014 World Cup and was widely praised for his handling of Brazil's last 16 clash with Chile.
But he has now opted to hang up his whistle to work for PGMOL, the body responsible for the training and development of match officials operating in the Premier League, Football League and FA competitions.
