Mark Clattenburg Is Now On Twitter, And His First Tweet Provokes A Huge Reaction
We haven't seen Mark Clattenburg officiate in the Premier League since April but everyone can now follow his every move as he's now on Twitter.
The 42-year-old has swapped England for Saudi Arabia as he takes up a shock, yet lucrative, role in the middle east which sees him become the 'Head of Refereeing for the Saudi Arabia Football Federation.'

Following an impressive year which saw him referee the Champions League, FA Cup and Euro 2016 finals, Clattenburg was approached by Saudi Arabian, and the enticing offer proved too hard to turn down.
But while everyone's 'favourite English referee' is no longer around on these shores, you can catch his updates on social media as he joins Twitter.
And his first Tweet was subject to a barrage of replies. Here his post:
