March 21, (THEWILL) – The England Football Association has upheld the appeal of Wolverhampton Wanderers to rescind the red card given to Matheus Nunes in the club’s recent match against Leeds United.

The Portugal international had been sent off during the final minutes of the 4-2 loss, but it was later revealed that referee, Michael Salisbury, had made an error, having wrongly attributed violent conduct to the midfielder.

Wolves successfully challenged the decision, meaning Nunes will be available to play in the club’s next three matches against Nottingham Forest, Chelsea and Brentford. However, Wolves’ defender Jonny will miss those games after being sent off for a challenge on Luke Ayling during the Leeds match.


Despite the reprieve for Nunes, Wolves are still struggling in the Premier League, currently in 13th place with just a one-point lead over Leeds and a three-point margin above the relegation zone.

Manager, Julen Lopetegui, was disappointed by the officials’ decision not to award Wolves a penalty and has called on them to “do their job” correctly.
