Mark Clattenburg admits to, is proud of being the worst type of referee

Mark Clattenburg's astonishing claim he 'allowed Tottenham to self-destruct' after losing title at rivals Chelsea

Fabregas appears to be anxious by Clattenburg's comments regarding a night where Chelsea stopped Spurs winning the Premier League title.

Spurs had to win to keep their title hopes alive however the match turned into a heated contest.

In a tetchy match, Clattenburg revealed he had the opportunity to send off a number of Tottenham players if he had officiated the game by the book, however he chose instead to "let them lose the title".

It was Eden Hazard's equaliser in the score draw that will be remembered as one of the most important goals in Leicester City's history.

"So whenever you went up against an opposition, for me I always felt like he referred to opposition players on first-name terms - that was consistent of Mark Clattenburg".

Clattenburg who is now the head of referees in Saudi Arabia has said he avoided sending anyone off as he did not want the reason for Tottenham's collapse to be put on him.

"It was theatre. I went in with a gameplan - that I didn't want Tottenham blaming Mark Clattenburg that they were going to lose the title", Clattenburg told the Men In Blazers podcast. 'Clattenburg cost Tottenham the title.' . "Clattenburg lost Tottenham the title", and it was pure theater that Tottenham self-destructed against Chelsea and Leicester win the title.

The Spanish midfielder has always received plenty of abuse from Tottenham fans, both in his days at Arsenal and now with Chelsea.

Fellow Tottenham team-mates Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier were also lucky to stay on the pitch following late a succession of late challenges.

He added: "I helped the game".

The comments have caused a furore, the suggestion being that referees should apply the laws consistently at all times, rather than considering the match situation. I used to give Clattenburg the benefit of the doubt, as I tend to give it to most referees since their job is thankless and nigh impossible, but these are extraordinary quotes from someone who gets paid far more (both in terms of money and attention) than he should to do a awful job.

The 42-year-old said he had allowed Tottenham to "self-destruct" as part of his "game plan" for the match, meaning he would not be blamed for Spurs losing the title.
