Wolves boss says ‘he could write a book’ on the decisions that went in favour of Leeds on Saturday

Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui was frustrated with the refereeing in their game against Leeds United.

Wolves lost the game 4-2, with two players being sent off in the game. It was a disastrous game for the Molineux crowd as Wolves were 3-0 down at the 60th minute mark.

Lopetegui argues that his side have been on the wrong end of refereeing decisions for the last few games:

“Jonny’s red card, in the last touch he lost a bit of control. I think it’s a yellow. After their fourth goal it was a very clear foul on Adama, and Nunes wanted to complain. He was walking back, the linesman bumped into Nunes, he couldn’t see him. He didn’t have any intention.”

“I can make a book [about decisions that have gone against Wolves this season] – Liverpool, Nottingham Forest, Newcastle, Southampton, today. Sometimes you can understand mistakes, they are part of football, but to repeat the same mistake against us is not easy.

“I don’t want an explanation, I’m not waiting for one. In the last match [v Newcastle] it was the same, today again. I want to have fair decisions and not have the feeling it was unbalanced. At the end of the season they are normally going to be balanced but we are very unlucky, we have to be critical with the bad things but we didn’t deserve to lose this match.”

Leeds win on Saturday sees them move up to 14th place with 11 games to go. The Whites face league leaders Arsenal in their first game after the international break.
