Being a referee is a pretty tough job.
One mistake and the fans get on your back, the manager slags you off after the game and you’re branded a cheat.
That being said, some referees make it easier than others for supporters to take the piss.
Unfortunately, Mike Dean is one of those referees.
He was appointed referee for the Manchester derby this week and was being mocked before the match had even kicked off!

Yeah…pretty weird right?
We’re not quite sure what Mike was up to, but we reckon he should focus on the match rather than the smell of his linesman’s top!
