Referee Mike Dean Demoted To The Championship
Category : News
Wirral born Premier League referee Mike Dean has been demoted to Sky Bet Championship action this weekend after a string of high profile, poor decisions.
The 48-year-old will be in the middle for the Yorkshire derby between Barnsley and Leeds at Oakwell on Saturday evening.
Dean endured a testing Christmas period, including his controversial sending off of West Ham platyer Sofiane Feghouli against Manchester United, which was later rescinded.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic also scored a clearly offside goal during that clash.
The Championship clash between the two Yorkshire rivals should be a fiery affair though, with Garry Monk’s promotion chasing side visiting the Tykes for the televised clash.
