Mark Clattenburg: Mikel Obi Almost Made Me Quit Refereeing – Ex-EPL Referee by Businesslist: 1:42pm On Sep 18
Former Premier League referee, Mark Clattenburg, has revealed that allegations made by former Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi, almost made him quit.

In 2012, Clattenburg was accused of racially abusing the Nigerian player.

This followed a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge .

Clattenburg had sent off two Chelsea players Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres and the officials missed an offside for United’s winning goal.

In his new autobiography, Whistle-Blower, he wrote: “Chelsea made a formal complaint to the FA three days after the game. They were saying I had racially abused Mikel and for the first time, I was made aware of the specifics of their accusation, which was also leaked to the press.

“According to Chelsea, I had said to Mikel, ‘Shut up, you monkey.’ The language disgusted me, it was damaging and fictitious.

“Twenty-five days after the game, the FA dismissed the case. I was not guilty, something I had known all along.”

That particular match was full of bias decisions.


Evans fouled Torres and as Clattenburg blew his whistle for a foul, Evans feeling guilty was already holding his head in his hands in anticipation of a straight red being the last defender, imagine the surprise when this biased referee pointed a second yellow card at Torres and sent him off for simulation.



Don't even get me started on the winning goal scored by United on the day.



Fraudulent decisions like that is why Karma is dealing with Manchester United post-ferguson era.

Long may it continue!

Read somewhere Mikel said Ramires told him that's what Clattenberg said, even tho Ramires could barely understand or speak English for that matter.

Black man will ever continue to suffer victim of racial abuse. The root cause is that feeling of inferiority to the whites.

Civilization may need to be reviewed.
Anything that seems anti-women, anti-LGBT or racist is demonized and the person is criticized like the devil himself.
Glad the FA investigated and dismissed the claim. See how a man's diligent refereeing career would have become history years ago.

This man was guilty. It took media propaganda and especially Alex Ferguson because he was an influential and respected coach to come and speak out in his favour before things started to turn around for him. He should go and sit down.

Since these men (Howard Webb and Mark) left, Manchester United have not been able to win any major trophy in England.
Mikel Obi may have been wrong in his accusations, but no denying the fact that Mark was United referee...
