Manchester United accused of cheating

Wolves boss Bruno Lage was furious with Manchester United for not following their approach to fair play in the build-up to Mason Greenwood’s controversial winner at the Molineux last weekend.

Greenwood scored an 80th minute goal, and it came after Paul Pogba had caught Ruben Neves on the foot with a sliding tackle. Neves stayed down and Manchester United continued play, much to the annoyance of the Wolves boss.

Referee Mike Dean didn’t give a free-kick and VAR didn’t also overturn the play, and Lage feels his side were robbed of a point.

“I didn’t talk with him [Neves], I see his leg, for me it’s clear, but also important to think about it,” said Lage.

“It happened with us in the same situation in the first half, Bruno was down and Pogba asked Nelson Semedo to pull the ball out and Nelson did. In the first half they were similar, Ruben was down and they shot on goal. In the same situation, we have a different way to see things and we put the ball out.”
