A close friend to Super Eagles and Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa says Mark Clattenburg, the referee who denied the 23 year old a stone wall penalty claim against Arsenal had a chat with him after the game.
Musa was clipped from behind by Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin in the box, after using his pace and trickery to leave the Spaniard in his wake.
However Clattenburg waved play on, but video replays showed the forward was indeed tripped by the Arsenal man, which in a way made the referee to have a word with the Nigerian,
” We spoke about the penalty incident and he confirmed the referee had a chat with him in the dressing room over it, it’s unfortunate it wasn’t given but then again such things happen in football” a national team colleague of the forward told Owngoalnigeria.com.
