Premier League Responds to Nottingham Forest and Mark Clattenburg as Testimonies Demanded

After the final whistle blew at Goodison Park, Forest released a statement expressing frustration over three penalties not given during the match. The club claimed to have warned the PGMOL about the VAR’s bias, and stated their intention to consider their options. Mark Clattenburg, a former Premier League referee now employed by Forest, criticized the “errors” in a column for the Daily Mail. The FA responded by requesting observations from Nottingham Forest, Nuno Espirito Santo, Neco Williams, and Mark Clattenburg regarding their comments.

Nuno Espirito Santo acknowledged the stress and fear caused by the decisions but emphasized that it was not an excuse. He pointed out that these issues have been ongoing and expressed disappointment over the decisions. Defender Neco Williams echoed these sentiments, asserting that the penalties were clear and blatant, and voiced concern over the repeated decisions against their team. The club specifically mentioned VAR Stuart Attwell as the “Luton fan” they had warned the PGMOL about.

Clattenburg criticized the refereeing team’s decisions and expressed frustration over the impact on Forest’s survival fight. He also highlighted the club’s efforts to caution the PGMOL about Attwell’s appointment as the VAR for the match.
