I don’t like 80 per cent of EPL referees – De Zerbi


Brighton manager, Roberto De Zerbi, has said he does not like 80 per cent of the referees in the Premier League.

De Zerbi was reacting to their 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on Sunday.

His comments come a week after Arsenal boss described the decision to allow Newcastle’s winner against them stand as “embarrassing” and a “disgrace”.

Brighton’s Mahmoud Dahoud was shown a straight red card for an ugly tackle on Sheffield’s Ben Osborn.

De Zerbi admitted Dahoud deserved his punishment, but cut an animated figure throughout the game and earned a yellow card.

After the match, he said: “I am honest and clear. I don’t like 80 per cent of England’s referees.”
