That cable looks slightly damaged, but can be bent back into straight with pliers and patience.
First of all, there was probably no need to unhook the cable during clutch service, however all you have to do is to run the nut on the side away from the operator end all the way to the end of the threads. That should give you enough slack to put the cable end in the holder, then pull the cable sleeve away from the bracket and run the nut up to the holder. When you have the lever adjusted the way you want it, run the second nut against the cable holder and snug it up ti lock the cable in place.
