Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to Mike Dean’s appointment for Sunday’s meeting with Tottenham.
The 52-year-old will take charge of the Premier League clash at Villa Park, the top flight have announced, and the news hasn’t gone down well with a section of Villa supporters on social media.
Darren Cann and Mark Scholes will assist Dean on the touchline, with Robert Jones as the fourth official and Simon Hooper on video assistant referee (VAR) duty.
Do you think Mike Dean is a good ref?
Dean a good Villa omen?
Dean has only been in the middle for one Villa game this season – the West Midlands derby against Wolves back in December.
@AVFC_News shared the confirmation on Twitter on Tuesday. This is what these Villa supporters had to say, with some bringing up his famous Spurs ‘celebration’ against Villa six years ago.
Villa fans react
“THE MAN CELEBRATED A SPURS GOAL IN THIS FIXTURE FA SORT IT OUT“
“Oh well that’s at least 4 players with match bans incoming then”
“Congrats Spurs to 3 points”
“Well we’ve lost then… #12thMan“
“Are the FA having a laugh?”
