'His arrogance is frightening' - Pearson slams referee

Nigel Pearson said the "arrigance" of referee Mike Dean is "frightening" after Leicester City's 4-3 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.

The manager's outburst came after a match in which his side had come from two goals down to draw level, before a penalty decision afforded Harry Kane the chance to net his hat-trick and restore Tottenham's lead.

An own-goal by Jeffrey Schlupp saw Spurs extend their advantage before David Nugent netted a consolation in the final minute, and Pearson directed his frustration at the match official when talking after the game.

The story is too old to be commented.
