Wolves manager out as Manchester City got huge boost

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil is out as for the crucial tie against Manchester City. Manchester City are currently second place on the table with one match in hand. If they win their next match they will go on top of the table as the final matchday approaches.

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil has been handed a one-match touchline ban and fined £8,000 for his outburst at a referee following a 2-1 defeat by West Ham on April 6. It happened after Maximilian Kilman’s stoppage time goal was denied by the official. In his words it is “possibly the worst decision I’ve ever seen” and got hit with a Football Association charge for improper conduct.

His behaviour towards referee Tony Harrington, who was advised by the VAR to check the monitor. Wolves substitute Tawanda Chirewa was stood in front of Lukasz Fabianski in an offside position before Kilman struck. Due to this incident O’Neil showed rage towards the official in a heated moment.

Due to this O’Neil will be absent from Wolves’ dugout. They visit the Etihad Stadium to face Premier League title-chasers Manchester City. According to the statement from football association “Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Gary O’Neil has been suspended from the touchline for one match. He is also fined £8,000 following the Premier League fixture against West Ham United on Saturday, 6 April 2024.

“Mr O’Neil admitted the charge and the sanctions were subsequently imposed by an independent regulatory commission.” Manchester City’s fellow title rivals Arsenal will be cheering for Wolves success. Arsenal who are currently at top of the table will face Bournemouth as they look to keep their winning streak going. Both clubs still have Tottenham and Manchester United clashes to decide the title. We can hope for the title race to go till last day for the winner.
