Because of its character and its style of arbitration, Mike Dean is one of the most charismatic members of the Premier League. This Sunday he showed it again after the match between Manchester City and Chelsea, and the one that Guardiola's team thrashed for a forceful 6 to 0 to the London team.
At the end of the match, the forward of the City Sergio Kun Agüero was looking for the ball to take home, after getting a hat-trick. The Argentine had been replaced shortly before the end of the match, so after the final whistle jumped into the field of Etihad Stadium to get the ball.

Aware of this, Mike and seeing him arrive, Dean hid the ball in his back from under his shirt. Agüero could not help laughing at the action of the referee, who ended up delivering the ball to the protagonist of the match.
