Referee Clattenburg back on Premier League roster

Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg will resume officiating

duties this weekend after being cleared of allegations that he

racially abused a Chelsea player during a match.

Clattenburg will be the fourth official for Tottenham’s home

match against West Ham on Sunday, and will take charge of

Wednesday’s match between Southampton and Norwich at St. Mary’s


The announcement Friday came a day after the English Football

Association said Clattenburg had no case to answer after being

accused by Chelsea midfielder Ramires of saying ”shut up you

monkey” to teammate John Obi Mikel during an Oct. 28 Premier

League match against Manchester United.

Clattenburg hasn’t refereed since the incident.
