Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup was left 'very angry' with referee Mike Dean during today's defeat at Spurs.
It wasn't a poor decision that led to the winning goal in the 1-0 loss, but for his decision to allow play to continue despite Michu suffering a bad head injury after colliding with Spurs' goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The game insists that play should be stopped instantly if anyone suffers a head injury, but despite the officials seeing the incident, they allowed the game to continue - even both sets of fans tried to make them aware of the situation.
Laudrup said that he didn't care if Spurs carried on playing and scored, all he cared for was the health of his player:
'I was very angry, not because I wanted the referee to give a penalty or a red card, but because they allowed the game to continue. I thought they should have blown up.
'Thankfully Michu was okay, but when he went down I thought he was unconscious. You can't fake a reaction like that.
'I remember when Harald Schumacher went into Patrick Battiston in 1982 and it reminded me of that.
'I didn't care if Spurs went down the other end and scored. The only thing I was worried about was the health of my player.
"I watched it afterward on the television and when it happened. When Michu is going down to the ground the referee is watching them, the linesman is watching them and still they let the game go on. It is such a poor decision and dangerous as well.
"I want referees and linesmen to do exactly the same as players and learn from their mistakes."
