Wolves manager charged for misconduct
Wolves manager charged for misconduct. Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been charged with misconduct after he raced onto the pitch to celebrate Diogo Jota’s 93rd-minute winner over Leicester on Saturday. Jota completed his hat-trick in the dying moments as Wolves secured a dramatic 4-3 victory over the Foxes at Molineux, while Nuno left his technical area to join in with his players’ celebrations before the full-time whistle had blown. He was subsequently dismissed by referee Chris Kavanagh, who did not send Jurgen Klopp off when he invaded the pitch to celebrate Liverpool’s late winner against Everton in November.
Nuno has until 6pm on January 24 to respond to the charge.

Nuno said in his post-match interview that he found it difficult to contain his emotions but accepted that Kavanagh made a “good decision” in sending him to the stands. “It’s the law, it’s not bad intention, it’s not (meant to be) disrespectful,” the Wolves boss said. “I’m so happy. Nuno Espirito Santo says Wolves’ dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester was a fantastic game but says they should have managed it better when they were 2-0 ahead. “It happened before with other managers, in that moment it’s difficult to contain your emotions.
“The law is clear, there’s no explanation.
