How Sir Alex Ferguson defended Mark Clattenburg in John Obi Mikel racism incident Mark Clattenburg has revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson offered him support in a phone call following allegations that he had used racist language towards John Obi Mikel in 2012. The former Premier League official was the referee in a fiery game between Chelsea andManchester Unitedin 2012, with the Reds coming out on top 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. Following the game, the London side alleged that Clattenburg had called Nigerian midfield Mikel a monkey. A formal complaint was made and eventually Clattenburg was cleared of any wrongdoing. But in a serialisation of his new autobiography in theDaily Mail, the referee has revealed that he received a phone call from then-Man United managerFergusonoffering his support and stating that the club would back him. Back at home, locked away and struggling to sleep, obsessively going over the events of Sunday, I began to slip into a dark place. It was then that I found an unlikely friend, Clattenburg revealed.

Mark, its Sir Alex Ferguson, came the unmistakable Glaswegian accent down the phone. I was such a wreck, I did not even say much back to him. I have spoken to my players and they did not hear you say what Chelsea are alleging. We dont believe you said it. I believe in fairness, so we will support you. Sir Alex did not have to make that call and he did not have to defend me in public, which he later did. But he did so because he believed what Chelsea were doing was wrong. He put his neck on the block, not for me, but in the name of truth and justice. I was later told Chelsea threatened to sue him for insinuating they were lying. But Sir Alex stuck to his guns, he thought it was nonsense. Clattenburgs book Whistle Blower will be released on September 30th and will be available at all major book stores.
