Mark Clattenburg: Referee will be fourth official at White Hart Lane on Sunday

Clattenburg will be the fourth official for Sunday's Premier League game between Tottenham and West Ham on Sunday at White Hart Lane and will then take charge of Wednesday's match between Southampton and Norwich.

The official has not been on duty since the controversial clash between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on 28 October, which the visitors won 3-2.

After the match, the 37-year-old Clattenburg was accused of using "inappropriate language" towards Mikel but a police investigation was dropped due to a lack of evidence.

And the Football Association then exonerated Clattenburg on Thursday, saying he had no case to answer.

That decision prompted the referee to say: "I am looking forward to putting this behind me and concentrating on refereeing in the Premier League and other competitions.

"The messages of encouragement from those inside and outside of the game have helped me through the most stressful time of my professional life."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
