Wolves Fined £57,500 For Touchline Incident In Leeds Game

Wolves have been hit with a fine of £57,500 by the Football Association (FA) for failing to control their players in last month's 4-2 Premier League defeat by Leeds.

Players and backroom staff threw caution to the wind at full-time at Molineux, claiming Adama Traore was fouled in the build-up to Rodrigo Moreno's stoppage-time goal.

In the heat of the moment, Unused substitute Matheus Nunes was shown a red card for allegedly barging into the assistant referee during the protest, but his three-game ban was later rescinded after Wolves appealed.

An FA statement reads: "Wolverhampton Wanderers have been fined £57,500 following an incident in the 98th minute of their Premier League game on Saturday 18 March against Leeds United.

“Wolverhampton Wanderers admitted failing to ensure that their players and technical area occupants do not behave in a way which is improper towards an assistant referee and the fourth official.

“An independent regulatory commission imposed their fine following a subsequent hearing and the written reasons for this sanction will be published in due course.”

This makes it the second time Wolves have been punished by the FA for failing to ensure their players conduct themselves in an orderly fashion.

They were fined in January after a mass confrontation following their Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Their next league game is against out-of-sorts Chelsea at Molineux this weekend with just two points separating them from the bottom three.
