‘Nobody knows? So you look up the game again and you don’t know? “Conor Coady and Mike Dean in heated exchange after rejecting Wolves’ goal in stalemate with Leicester
- There was VAR controversy when Wolves signed 0-0 with Leicester City
- Video technology ruled out Willy Boly’s goal shortly before the break
- Pedro Neto’s toe was considered offside in the run-up to the “goal”
- Wolves captain Conor Coady and referee Mike Dean shared heated words
Wolves captain Conor Coady and referee Mike Dean were involved in a heated discussion during the rest period of Wolves’ tie with Leicester City.
The two teams shared a scoreless draw at Molineux in a forgettable affair, but the game was marred but still a controversial decision imposed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).
Willy Boly headed Wolven just before half-time, but VAR eventually hit the goal because of Pedro Neto’s toe offside.

While referee Mike Dean walked towards the tunnel before the break, Captain Coady approached the referee and demanded to know why the goal was excluded.
Coady said: ‘Who is offside? Iota? Jota’s offside when the goal comes in? “
Dean then pointed to his ear and indicated that the VAR had told him to exclude the target even though he did not see the decision.
The captain of Wolves was angry that VAR excluded Willy Boly’s first half goal
Wolves went to Leicester City 0-0, as the home team was unable to close the gap in the top four
That led Coady to shout as he shrugged: “So nobody knows? You are the referee of the game and you don’t know? “
The result meant that Wolves were 14 points behind Leicester, who were 11 points ahead of fifth place in Sheffield United.
The side of Nuno Espirito Santo is in seventh place, three points behind the Blades, because fifth place in the Premier League table seems to be enough to qualify for the Champions League after Manchester City launched a two-year European ban from UEFA had received.
However, Wolves can be overtaken in seventh place if Manchester United avoids the Stamford Bridge on Monday night, while Tottenham Hotspur can jump in fifth place to beat Aston Villa on Sunday.
