Southampton accuse referee Clattenburg of insulting and abusing Lallana

Southampton have asked the Premier League that Mark Clattenburg not referee any of their fixtures after accusing the official of using insulting and abusing language towards their England midfielder Adam Lallana, the Daily Mail has reported.


Mark Clattenburg


The incident is said to have taken place during Southampton’s 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park in late December, when Clattenburg rejected a number of Southampton penalty appeals, to the dismay of Lallana. Mauricio Pochettino, the Southampton manager, claimed after the game his side should have been awarded two spot kicks with one, a perceived handball by Everton defender Antolin Alcaraz, particularly raising the ire of Lallana, who was later booked for dissent.


The Mail claims that a source close to the incident revealed Clattenburg spoke to Lallana in a way that is “not what you might expect of one of the game’s top officials.” Referees’ chief Mike Riley is investigating the complaints regarding Clattenburg, who was scheduled to take charge of the FA Cup tie between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.


Last season Clattenburg was accused - and later cleared of - racially abusing Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, while Southampton’s game at Goodison Park was the first time since 2007 Clattenburg has refereed an Everton home game following a controversial performance in the Merseyside derby. Then, he appeared to issue a red card to Everton’s Tony Hibbert on the advice of Steven Gerrard, failed to send off Dirk Kuyt for a waist high lunge and didn’t award Everton a late penalty, with the Toffees losing the match 2-1.
