Wolves boss Nuno calls for VAR improvement after latest denial in Leicester draw

Nuno Espirito Santo urged football's rule-makers to end VAR's use for marginal offsides after Wolves were denied again.

Wanderers thought they had taken the lead against Leicester when Willy Boly headed in before the break.

But VAR ruled it out for a fractional offside on Pedro Neto's heel in the build up.

It was the fourth Wolves' goal VAR has chalked off this season – including in a 0-0 draw at Leicester on the opening weekend when Boly was penalised for handball.

Wolves fans reacted furiously to the latest decision as they chanted: “It's not football anymore” and the hosts had to settle for a point.

Nuno rued: “I am upset because Molineux was buzzing and suddenly it becomes an issue to recover the levels of concentration.

“Let's try and hope who has to decide thinks of the fans – something has to be done.

“The fans see the ball inside the goal and they celebrate.

“When you have something and people take it away you don't like it. Unfortunately it has happened more times for us which is upsetting.

“But it is about the game and football and what kind of game we want to see and how the fans are going to react.

“I want things to improve. We are not judging the work of the referees but I am frustrated with the situation.

"Let's hope things improve.”


Nuno explained he wanted the offside rule to revert to clear daylight between players straying offside rather than VAR checking on millimetres.

He was backed by his players including skipper Conor Coady who protested to referee Mike Dean at half-time.
