Watch: Mark Clattenburg gets hit by a water bottle before jokingly dishing out a yellow card

Clattenburg takes a knock from a stray bottle in the Saudi Professional League.

Mr Clattenburg was being a nice guy as he tended to an injured player before absorbing a bottle to the face from Egyptian defender Hussein Sayed during Al Ettifaq’s 1-1 draw with Al Feiha on Saturday.

The Geordie referee took the blow in good spirits.

As language was clearly a barrier, Clattenburg pretended to give the regretful Fayed a yellow card for the sake of playful banter.

No “gameplan” from Clattenburg here it seems.
