Ex-ref Clattenburg explains Forest job: No doubt there’s been harsh decisions against them

Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg is confident he can help Nottingham Forest.

Clattenburg has been named as Forest’s ‘referee analyst’.

He wrote for the Daily Mail: “It is not unusual for clubs in other countries to use refereeing consultants, though the Premier League has never embraced this idea to my knowledge.

“Until now, that is, because I’ll be working with Forest under the title of ‘match and performance analyst.’ I will help in the understanding of how and why certain decisions are made, prepare pre-match packs on the officiating teams taking charge of their fixtures, and one of my other main aims will be improving the relationship between the club and the PGMOL.

“It is no secret that Forest have been on the receiving end of controversial calls this season. There was Ivan Toney’s goal for Brentford when he moved the ball – and the referee’s foam – before scoring his free-kick. There was the harsh red card for Joe Worrall and penalty awarded for an apparent foul by Danilo against Manchester United.

“There was Willy Boly being shown a second yellow against Bournemouth even though he won the ball. There was the failure to award them an obvious penalty when Taiwo Awoniyi was tripped by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

“These are not insignificant incidents when you are a club trying to stay in the Premier League.”
