Pedro Neto has given his reaction to the latest decision to go against Wolves.

 

Wanderers fans are still feeling annoyed after Saturday’s game with Sheffield United which saw the Blades win right at the death, after being awarded a penalty.

Fabio Silva was adjudged to have fouled George Baldock in the area. But replays showed Baldock was already going to ground before the contact from Silva.

 

Somehow, the on-field decision was not overturned by VAR.

 

Oliver Norwood converted to hand United the three points – leaving Silva inconsolable.

 

That is at least the third VAR controversy Wolves have had this season. In the first game, Andre Onana clattered into Sasa Kalajdzic but the incident was waved away.

 

Against Newcastle United, a penalty was awarded for a foul by Hwang Hee-chan. Replays showed this was another dive by Fabian Schar.

 

There was also a handball decision that went against Joao Gomes against Luton Town, but this one was supposedly correct in law.

 

Pedro Neto reacts to latest Wolves VAR controversy.

 

A number of Wolves players have expressed their frustrations with the referees and VAR following the latest incident.

 

Max Kilman was among the first to take to social media after Saturday’s game.

 

Nelson Semedo has also commented saying he no longer has any faith in Premier League officials and VAR.

 

Gary O’Neil also raged after the game, believing the officiating standards are nowhere near where they need to be.

Pedro Neto has also now given his reaction to the latest decision. The winger could not take part yesterday as he begins his recovery from a hamstring injury.

But he was obviously an interested spectator, and was not happy yesterday.

Sharing Jose Sa’s Instagram post, he wrote on his Story: “4 times it’s enough. But we keep working as we always do.”

 

Once is enough, let alone four times

Wolves have been incredibly unlucky this season on the decisions front.

 

To think the team has been stung four times is absolutely inexplicable. Especially when you consider how referees have the benefit of VAR and so many replays to reach the right decisions.

 

You can understand the odd decision going against your team from time to time.

 

But this is constantly happening to Wolves and it does not appear to be ‘evening itself out’, as they say.

 

It’s embarrassing that the best league in the world can have the worst officiating standards.
