Mark Clattenburg is currently busy earning £££ in Saudi Arabia.Sorry, the man’s actually in China and still making bank. He’s moving so fast, it’s hard to know where he is. Sometimes he also referees professional football matches in the Chinese League.
Another times, he is out there on twitter like a lot of us and looking to speak something. Things like which is the best Premier League team, or the one he supports himself.
Supporting football clubs is a tricky job when you are a match official. Even trickier when you are Mark Clattenburg, probably one of the most derided names in English match officials.
A referee with 13 years of experience in the Premier League from 2004-17, Clattenburg still astonishingly supports Newcastle United.
“Newcastle United. The best team in the world!”
Yeah mark, we are scared of your magpies.
