Wolverhampton Wanderers v Leicester City - Premier League

Only a handful of Wolves players acknowledged the fans after 4-0 defeat to Leicester

Wolves fell to a shocking 4-0 defeat to Leicester City today – and things are beginning to turn toxic at the club.

Wanderers were demolished by a clinical Foxes side at Molineux, with Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy all on target for the visitors.

But it was largely a sorry performance, and technical director Scott Sellars came in for criticism from many supporters present.

Many feel the 56-year-old has failed in his duties and has left the team well short of where it needs to be.

At this rate, a relegation battle now seems very likely.

Wolves just can’t put the ball on the back of the net.

And the defensive solidity of the first few weeks of the season has now been lost.

There are so many issues at the moment, and the fans do not deserve such performances and results.

It was understandable that many left Molineux way before full-time today.

After the game, inexplicably, there were only a handful of Wolves players who went and acknowledged those that had stayed until the end.

According to journalist Liam Keen, those were youngsters Hugo Bueno and Chem Campbell, who went over the South Bank.

Captain Ruben Neves was also among those to acknowledge the remaining supporters, as was defender Nathan Collins and Davis himself.

Credit to those five, but that was it. The rest headed straight down the tunnel according to Keen.

Embarrassing from the Wolves players, who should always face their supporters win, lose or draw

It is deeply disappointing that many of the Wolves players went straight down the tunnel.

This happened a few weeks ago when Wolves played West Ham United. Just five players went over the travelling fans.

Bruno Lage said that he would speak to the players about showing more respect. Either the former manager didn’t do that, or his words went in one ear and out the other.

Those that went over after today’s game deserve some credit, especially youngsters Bueno and Campbell, who clearly care.
