Norwegian Tom Harald Hagen is the first international top referee to call himself gay. “I feel the time is right and I think that only positive things will come out of this,” said 42-year-old Hagen in a conversation with the Norwegian newspaper Glamdalen.
The Norwegian is the number 1 among referees in his own country. Last Sunday he led the match between Valerenga and Kristiansund. After that match, there was some commotion because Kristiansund’s striker Flamur Kastrati, the Valerenga coach, had called Dag-Eilev Fagermo “a damn fagot”.
“It is the height of irony that I was just leading that match,” said Hagen, who had not noticed the incident during the match. “Maybe he said it on a whim, that can happen in football. But we have to get rid of it. ”
Hagen became an international referee in 2009. He whistled, among other things, a World Cup qualifying match between Belgium and Scotland (2-0) in 2012 and European matches against Anderlecht and Club Brugge.
