Good morning, fight fans.
Clatterberk referees so badly he’s been accused of being bent.
Charges by fans of corruption aimed at officials are common enough fare, but in the case of young Marky Mark they have been fueled by the disclosure that the man with the sensational syrup has on several occasions been up to his knickers in debt.
Both Spurs and Manchester United fans will be unsurprised to discover Mark Clattenburg’s life off the pitch is as much of a fiasco as it is on it.
He was appointed as a director of MC Electrical Retail NE Ltd on June 23 2008.
Four days later the firm was wound up under the Insolvency Act at Newcastle County Court over an alleged unpaid debt of £59,000 to fellow electrician John Hepworth.
It then came to light that another business, MC Electrical Services NE Ltd (spot the difference?) was wound up on January 23 2008 and Companies House records show the company folded owing £57,454 to trade creditors, HSBC Bank and HM Revenue and Customs. Mmmmn.
The FA suspended Clatternburg over this for failing to disclose his debts.
In November of the same year, Clattenburg’s ex-girlfriend Susan Clegg was arrested on suspicion of trashing his Porsche Boxster, worth £40,000, which was vandalized outside his flat in Gosforth, Newcastle.
This is the same clown that made a complete fist of a Merseyside derby in 2007 which drew over 3,000 signatures on a petition to have him axed from refereeing.
In the match, Liverpool beat Everton 2-1 despite Clattenburg sending off two Everton players, giving Liverpool a disputed penalty and turned down two penalty appeals from Everton. After the game Mark received death threats.
Jack it in son. You’re out of your depth.
