Mike Dean punctures his ego at Barnsley and Leeds United
Mike Dean is the Premier League referee in the spotlight. In days gone by he’d have been ‘Mr Dean from [insert place here]’. The media would have shown deference to his job. Now he’s Mike and you don’t know his address in case someone puts his windows in.
The Sun loves to give Mike a bashing. And it’s delighted to report that Mike’s been relegated. Adam Jones writes:
What will this do for Mike Dean’s ego? …he’s been dropped to the Championship for this weekend’s fixtures.
Mike’s the referee for the Barnsley v Leeds United match.
Or as the Daily Mail puts it:
Dean asked to officiate in the second tier after doing six consecutive high-profile Premier League games live on TV
So much for Mr Dean’s ego.
