Referee Mark Clattenburg has been cleared by the FA.

After investigating the alleged abuse of John Obi Mikel, the FA does not believe the referee has a case to answer – and has charged the Nigerian midfielder.

The FA will take no further action against Clattenburg after concluding its investigation into the official’s alleged misconduct during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Manchester United.

The west London side decided to make a formal complaint about the 37-year-old after Ramires and Jon Obi Mikel told club officials of their belief that the referee had abused the Nigerian 25-year-old.

However, the association do not believe the official has a case to answer – and Obi Mikel has been charged with using threatening and/or abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour in or near the Match Officials’ room.

The FA’s official statement reads: “The FA has concluded its investigation into alleged misconduct by Mark Clattenburg during the match between Chelsea FC and Manchester United FC on Sunday 28 October 2012. No disciplinary action will follow against Mr Clattenburg.”
