FA interviews Mark Clattenburg over 'inappropriate language'
Friday 09 November 2012
The Football Association interviewed Mark Clattenburg yesterday in its investigation into allegations by Chelsea that the referee used inappropriate language towards their midfielder John Obi Mikel during the game against Manchester United on 28 October.
Clattenburg's assistant referees, Michael McDonough and Simon Long, and the fourth official Michael Jones were also interviewed and the FA is expected to make a decision early next week on whether he will be charged with improper conduct or there is no case for him to answer. Clattenburg will not officiate at a game this weekend.
