Bjorn Helge Riise thinks plans to use five officials at the World Cup should be shelved. He’s got a unique way of describing the experiment in the Europa League as ineffective too.

I didn’t even realise we had extra officials when we played with them, until I went to take a corner kick.

When we played in Sofia I saw an obvious penalty for us and the extra official was standing right by me and didn’t see it so, in my opinion, it doesn’t work.

I don’t think we need it and sometimes the mistakes that are made are just part of the charm of football.
