Former Premier League referee, Mark Clattenburg, has revealed that he supports Newcastle United, during a Twitter question-and-answer session.
Clattenburg was a match official in the English top flight for 13 years before he left the UK in 2017 for a role with the Saudi Arabian Football Federation.
Earlier this year, he confirmed that he had been hired by the Chinese Football Association.
As he has cut all ties with the Professional Game Match Officials Limited in England, Clattenburg has also decided to reveal his preferred football team.
Responding to a fan asking him to reveal his football club on Twitter, Clattenburg replied: “Newcastle United. The best team in the world!”
