Wolves 2-1 Manchester United: Mike Dean makes history by reaching century of Premier League red cards

Mike Dean has become the first referee in Premier League history to brandish 100 red cards.

The iconic official dismissed Ashley Young midway through the second-half of Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves at Molineux on Tuesday night.

Young gets his marching orders

The 50-year-old was given no choice following the defender’s rash challenge on Diogo Jota, which was deemed worthy of a second yellow card.

Dean also hit double figures for this campaign after giving Young his marching orders.

It was his tenth dismissal in just 24 matches, almost double his closest competitor Michael Oliver, who has shown six red cards this term.
