Norwich manager Chris Hughton has welcomed back referee Mark Clattenburg after the racial abuse allegations against him were dismissed.

The 37-year-old official will take charge of Norwich’s Premier League match against Southampton at Saint Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday, having not officiated since he was accused of using the term ‘monkey’ towards John Obi Mikel by Chelsea following their 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

The Football Association found that Clattenburg had no case to answer due to a lack of evidence and Hughton insists he will not be under any additional pressure.

“I for one am pleased he is back after all that happened. He will be very well received,” he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

“I think everyone will be delighted to see him back but there’s no pressure.

“Referees are the same as players and managers, we’re all under pressure in these games and he’s an experienced referee.

“The only pressure he’ll be under will be from making the right decisions but they go through that every game. It’s not a game on television. So the spotlight will just be from within.”
