What you should know

Clattenburg is currently in top shape: He is just coming from the Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid in Milano, where he performed very well.

Mark Clattenburg is no referee who does not know what it means to cope with social pressure from the media scrutiny. In the past, he has often got into the spotlight of some affairs, e.g. with regard to an alleged use of inappropiate language against a dark-skinned Chelsea player. After last week's FA Cup Final, the name "Clattenburg" was surely part of some eye-catching headlines in the English press.

Along with his compatriot Martin Atkinson, Clattenburg is one of two English referees selected for matches at EURO 2016. 

Refereeing Style 

Game-Manager. Clattenburg usually succeeds in managing the match with his authentic body language. His quite particular gestures - that may appear as a bit odd at times - make the players accept his decisions and follow his leadership. Sometimes he even uses his tongue...

His symbol of recognition. The piercing high sound of his whistle - or rather the way how he uses his Fox40 Classic. By covering its side holes, he makes glasses burst... almost at least.


His Strengths*

1| Player Management, Verbal Warnings
2| Approach, Body Language, Self-Presentation, Signals
3| Application and Interpretation of the Laws of the Game
4| Disciplinary Control
5| Physical Condition, Positioning



His Points for Improvement* 

1| Sometimes: Keeping Control and the Overview
2| More Prevention against Unsporting Behaviour / Dissent
3| Advantage Rule: Game Advantage or only Ball Advantage?
4| Alertness on Pushing-Pulling-Tactic of defenders inside the penalty area
5| Co-operation with Assistant Referees (specially in Offside Situations)
