He went on the give the example of Mike Dean – ‘from the Wirral (Liverpool”) –  who he doubts has reffed many Liverpool games in his refereeing career.

He further rationalised his comments by explaining – Shanklyesque –  that he’s the representative and spokesperson for millions of fans across the world, and that they have the right to know how he feels.
