Wolves Boss to face Match Ban after FA Charge due to. . .



The Football Association has charged Wolves manager Gary O’Neil with “improper and/or threatening” behaviour following Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League defeat to West Ham.

The charge, according to the FA, is for O’Neil’s alleged remarks “around the match officials’ changing room”.

O’Neil criticized the decision to rule out a late Wolves equaliser at Molineux as “possibly the worst decision I have ever seen”.

He has till Monday to answer.

Wolves captain Max Kilman headed home in the ninth minute of stoppage time, but replacement Tawanda Chirewa was offside.

However, video assistant referee (VAR) Tim Robinson urged a replay, and referee Tony Harrington determined that Chirewa was in West Ham goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski’s line of vision.

O’Neil claimed he went to visit Harrington after the game but was so enraged that Harrington refused to speak with him.

“I wasn’t able to control my emotions well enough to get an explanation,” O’Neil admitted after the game. “The referee stated that he would prefer not to discuss it because of how I was acting.

“If you are a Premier League official working at the highest level, I would be really unhappy if you believed that was offside.

“The only way that is offside is if he prevents Fabianski from moving or obstructs his vision. Only the referee and VAR believe that could be offside.”

Wolves, currently 11th in the standings, go to relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
