During Bournemouth's match last Sunday against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, midfielder Dan Gosling claims that the referee Jon Moss kept making disgraceful comments about Bournemouth and what's happening to them in the Premier League.
"The ref didn't help," Gosling told the Bournemouth Echo. "Giving soft fouls away and little comments to two or three of the lads didn't help as well really.
"I thought it was very disrespectful what he was saying. It was just the little niggly ones and then the little sarky comments.
"I thought he was a disgrace. The comments that he made especially to me and one other player – talking about the relegation zone and 'you're still in the relegation zone', 'you're having one', 'your team's having one' this and that and it was very, very disrespectful."
He added: "I think he should really come out and apologize because I thought he was a disgrace."
The Cherries lost 2-1 despite scoring first, a result that makes their fight for survival harder as they are now 16th with 26 points, just two points off the relegation spot.
The Premier League is yet to make a comment on this matter.
