Question for owner of F* 300mm lens

I have a F* 300mm lens and I managed to get the lens hood stuck in extended position last time I used it (cross-threaded I believe).

What I would like to know from another owner of this lens is which direction does the hood turn to loosen from the extended position? Please refer to the direction in terms of clockwise/counter-clockwise when viewing from the front of the lens.

Viewed from the front it is anti-clockwise to extend and clockwise to undo it.
