Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has been enjoying a productive loan spell at Sheffield United.
The Blades are reportedly desperate for the Englishman to remain until the end of the season.
Last night, Gibbs-White again started on the right of Slavisa Jokanovic’s midfield as United hosted Millwall in the Championship.
On 54 minutes, with the score at 1-1, Gibbs-White was sent off, after being shown a second yellow card for diving.
Jokanovic spoke to the Yorkshire Post after the match about the decision, and was critical of Gibbs-White.
“It was so naive,” he said.
“The referee interpreted that it was not a fair play action and showed him a yellow card and I cannot complain a lot about this decision even if it did kill us.
“If I talk about the referee, I don’t feel comfortable as he tried all the time to not allow physical challenges, but if you show no fair play, you get a yellow.”
Gibbs-White is a hugely talented player but he still has a bit to learn. He’ll get there but last night was a lesson for him.
His manager has admitted that decision ‘killed’ his side as they slipped to a 2-1 home defeat.
There was controversy elsewhere as the Blades felt Millwall should have had George Saville sent off for a second yellow.
Those are the fine margins which matter and that is what Gibbs-White will learn playing week in, week out, rather than getting substitute appearances at Wolves.
