Chelsea facing FA charge over referee’s room row


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Friday 02 November 2012

Chelsea are expected to be on the receiving end of a Football Association charge regarding a number of people, including manager Roberto Di Matteo and John Obi Mikel, entered the referee’s room to confront Mark Clattenburg after the defeat to Manchester United, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Di Matteo’s assistant Eddie Newton was also said to be in the group that burst into the officials’ changing room shortly after the final whistle. It is not clear if the club’s chief executive Ron Gourlay was with the original group, as the Mirror claim, or if Chelsea’s assertion that Gourlay only joined the discussion afterwards is the accurate course of events.


FA rules state that the referee’s room can only be entered with permission from the official, and even then only after the 30 minute cooling-off period following the end of the match. The group of Chelsea representatives are understood to have entered the room without permission, 15 minutes after the end of the match.


The Mirror adds that Clattenburg has included the incident in his report on the match, and any charge would be heard separately to the allegations made by Chelsea over Clattenburg’s alleged comments towards Mikel.
