Clattenburg will be Saudi Arabia’s new head of referees. This will involve him working with existing referees to improve performance and professionalise the setup but also taking charge of some local league games.

He has signed a one-year rolling contract.

It’s understood he will start in a part-time capacity until the end of the current season and begin full time next season.

In fact, what he's actually doing is training Saudi referees


Interesting move... you can't knock him for doing the same as players do by following the money

Needs to sort out his unethical hair first, though

He'll actually be head of referees as opposed to a regular match official

Whats his increase in salary likely to be, can't blame him if the moneys good and he'll get much less abuse and scrutiny

Thought it would be China though, not Saudi Arabia. Hope he's aware that he'll never be able to sport a mohawk now.
