AUDIO: Relentless Dave Jones slams referee after Watford's 2-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday
Referee criticism is common in press conferences but Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones’ comments about referee Darren Sheldrake last night still surprised many in attendance. It wasn’t only the headline-grabbing phrases used by Jones, it was the quantity.
Jones blamed Sheldrake for Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Watford after the referee refused to award either a penalty or a goal in the first half.
The former Cardiff City boss claimed Sheldrake should be removed as a Championship referee and be forced to see a psychologist.
Jones described it as one of the poorest performances he had seen for some time and that Sheldrake’s display took away from Wednesday’s performance, which he claimed was “of the highest order”.
