Mike Dean removed as fourth official in Spurs game over Pochettino incident

Mike Dean will no longer act as fourth official for Wednesday’s Premier League match between Chelsea and Tottenham after being confronted by Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino on Saturday.

The Argentine walked over to Dean after the 2-1 defeat at Burnley and reacted angrily towards the referee.

The body responsible for the appointment of officials decided it was best for Dean to be taken off the game.

Andre Marriner will act as fourth official at Chelsea instead.

Professional Game Match Officials Limited has moved Dean so he will instead be on the touchline at Manchester City v West Ham.

The Football Association announced on Monday that Pochettino had been charged with a breach of their rules following the incident at Turf Moor.
