It’s not often we break the news about a referee leaving the Premier League. But Mark Clattenburg isn’t just any ordinary referee. Some love him and some love hate to hate him. To put it simply, the highly entertaining Clattenburg has a World Class CV that puts him at the highest pecking order.

“The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) would like to wish Mark Clattenburg well as he prepares for his move to the Saudi Arabian Football Federation.” 

Last year was a memorable one for Clattenburg, who took charge of the FA Cup final, Champions League final and Euro 2016 final.
