VAR Controversy: Wolves demanding FA explanation for disallowed Anfield goal

Wolves manager Julien Lopetegui was furious with the decision in real time

Wolverhampton Wanderers are seeking an explanation from the Football Association for Toti Gomes’ disallowed goal against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

According to, Wolves are still furious for a goal they feel should have stood only to be ruled off-side by the linesman. Adding more fuel to the fire, VAR’s camera angle at the corner flag remained “too zoomed in”, preventing it from capturing the full image needed to check if Matheus Nunes was offside or not.

Wolves manager Julien Lopetegui was incandescent after the decision robbed the Midlands club of a potentially famous win at Anfield. The Spaniard called the decision “impossible” and the “wrong decision”. He confirmed that the club have written to the FA to seek a formal explanation for this contentious decision.

In his latest press conference Lopetegui said – “Of course, I have seen the images on the internet and I have my opinion and we have sent to the FA our comments and we are waiting for an explanation. I talked after the match and now we have sent our comments but it’s very clear something has happened…”

Even Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted he thought the goal would stand after watching it in real time.

The two clubs will face each other in the third round FA Cup replay at Molineux on January 17th at 19.45.
