Winter: Chelsea claims are serious

Published 2 Comments

Former referee Jeff Winter thinks Mark Clattenburg will not officiate a match again if it is proven that he racially abused a Chelsea player in Sunday's five-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea submitted a formal complaint to the Premier League on Sunday that alleged Clattenburg used "inappropriate language" towards two of their players during the Blues' 3-2 defeat in west London. The alleged comments are understood to have been interpreted as racist.

"If a match official has used racial insults or language to a player then he's for the high jump," Winter told Radio 5 Live. "He won't be getting a four-match or an eight-match ban, it'll probably be the end of his career, but that is if indeed he did say anything."
