Toti Gomes shares what went down with Morgan Gibbs-White

Toti Gomes has spoken about his altercation with Morgan Gibbs-White after last night’s Carabao Cup quarter-final match.

The game finished 1-1 following goals from Willy Boly for the hosts and Raul Jimenez for Wolves.

Wolves were very sloppy in the first-half, and the formation was not working.

Julen Lopetegui changed things up at half-time and brought on Ruben Neves.

That gave Wolves more control, and helped the team score a lovely goal through Jimenez.

Forest didn’t show much in the second-half, and Wolves only had a few chances.

They might well have had a golden chance from the penalty spot had referee Graham Scott awarded a foul on Matheus Nunes.

He was bundled over by Emmanuel Dennis, but Scott didn’t give it and VAR was not in use.

In the end, it was penalties and Joe Hodge unfortunately saw his spot-kick saved by Dean Henderson.

After the shootout, a brawl ensued.

Seemingly, it all came about because Morgan Gibbs-White did not take kindly to Matheus Cunha putting his fingers in his ears (via Nathan Judah). Gibbs-White made that gesture after scoring his spot-kick, with the Brazilian then mimicking him.

There were unsavoury scenes, with Toti and Gibbs-White going at each other.

The centre-back has now spoken about what went down, telling the club’s official website: “I went there to separate and he [Gibbs-White] wanted to fight with me and I don’t know why because I didn’t want to fight with him.

“I didn’t understand why, but then many people came. I don’t know why because we know each other and I wouldn’t fight with him, I just wanted to separate.

“But it calmed down and we’re all friends again.”

Morgan Gibbs-White’s behaviour against Wolves last night was disappointing as Toti Gomes comments on post-match brawl

Gibbs-White’s reaction after he scored his penalty last night was disrespectful. If he was getting stick during the game then he should have just rose above it. Because not all Wolves fans wanted him gone in the summer. In fact, many wanted him to stay.

If it’s true that it was Cunha’s gesture that annoyed him then that’s a strange one. If you’re going to give it out, you must be able to take it.

It is a shame we saw such scenes at the end of last night’s game.

Gibbs-White can certainly now count on being booed every time he faces Wolves from here on in.
