Chelsea London, May 9 (ANI): Penalty row Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo has scoffed at Chelsea fans’ death threats, insisting: “I’m not scared.” According to The Sun, the dad of three, who caused fury on Wednesday by denying the Blues four spot kicks against Barcelona, remained in hiding after being barred from returning to his home in Oslo, Norway.

But in text messages, he said of the threats: “I am not shocked by this behaviour. I am ready to fight my next battle - on the pitch.” (ANI)
