Mark Clattenburg Reveals Former Colleague Who Was’not trusted’ to referee Man Utd vs Liverpool

Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has revealed that fellow referee Mike Jones was allowed to officiate top matches because he did not have the skills to do that.

Jones served as a Premier League referee between 2008 and 2018. He was considered one of the best but surprisingly, he was not considered to handle big matches.

“That’s a myth,” Clattenburg told The Athletic on whether the merit table determines referee allocations. “I was near the bottom of the merit table. I didn’t suit the system he (Riley) had put in place.

“This mathematical system, I didn’t agree with it. Refereeing isn’t mathematical, it’s about feeling. When you are refereeing the big matches, you have to go with your feeling. Information Guide Nigeria

“So I was near the bottom of the merit table but still refereeing the big matches. Why? Because they trusted me in the big matches. There were people like Mike Jones near the top of the merit table and he had never refereed a big match in his life

“You couldn’t trust Mike Jones with Manchester United v Liverpool. He didn’t have the skill set, he didn’t have the experience, the players wouldn’t respect him. He’d be near the top of the merit table because if you’re refereeing Southampton v Watford, last on Match of the Day, the exposure is zero.

“You referee Manchester United v Liverpool, the exposure is huge.” JAMB Result
