Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo charged by FA after being sent off in victory over Leicester City

Written by

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association after he was sent off during his side’s match with Leicester City.

Santo ran onto the pitch to celebrate with his players when Diogo Jota scored a 93rd minute goal at Molineux to give them a 4-3 win.

Referee Chris Kavanagh then sent the manager to the stands for his actions.

Santo has until Thursday evening to respond to the charge and he could face a fine of touchline ban for his alleged misconduct breach.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was fined £8,000 when he charged on to the field to hug goalkeeper Alisson following his side’s late win against Everton at Anfield last month.

Kavanagh was also the match official on that occasion, but did not send off the German.

Speaking after Saturday’s seven-goal thriller, Nuno said: “It was not a bad intention, and it was not meant to be disrespectful.

“It has happened before with other managers, and in that moment it is difficult to contain your emotions.


“The law is clear. The referee explained it to me, and it was a good decision. He told me I was not allowed to go outside of the technical area.”

The dramatic victory took Wolves up to eighth in the table on their first season back in the Premier League.
