Julen Lopetegui said after the game with Leeds United that Nelson Semedo was forced off injured.
The full-back made way just before the hour mark to be replaced by Adama Traore.
Semedo was at the centre of a very big moment in the game in the first-half.
He made his way into the penalty area and was taken down by Leeds’ Junior Firpo.
Replays showed that Semedo got to the ball first, and that Firpo had kicked Semedo’s foot.
Referee Michael Salisbury waved away the protestations, and there was no intervention from VAR.
That left Wolves simmering, and there would be more incidents to come.
At the end of the game, Leeds scored through Rodrigo. But moments before, Adama Traore had his shirt pulled. VAR told Salisbury to look at the incident again, but he stuck with his original decision.
The goal stood and the Wolves bench was furious.
Amid all the chaos, Matheus Nunes was shown a red card for bumping into the linesman. Lopetegui has said the club will be appealing.
The head coach spoke about the game, and mentioned that Semedo actually had to come off because of a knee injury he picked up from the tackle by Firpo.
He said (Wolves official): “It’s about opinion. You have to have an opinion and I have to give you my opinion as a coach, and the penalty I have seen is clear. It’s very, very clear, he didn’t touch the ball, he touched [Semedo’s] knee.
“I had to change him in the second-half for this injury, so it’s very clear that he didn’t touch the ball. In the last match it was a penalty, but we only received and apology, but we don’t want apologies, we want fairness.”
Wolves seriously can’t afford to lose Nelson Semedo as star goes off against Leeds injured
Hopefully this is nothing too serious.
Semedo didn’t have a great day yesterday. But generally under Lopetegui he has been much improved.
Wolves really can’t afford to lose the £29 million star.
Especially since the man who would replace him, Jonny Castro Otto, is now suspended after his red card challenge on Luke Ayling.
The fact he was able to play on may suggest he’ll be OK.
