Victor Lindelof’s red card call vs Wolves

Man United are out of the FA Cup after a 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Saturday night.

That means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s last remaining chance of winning a trophy this season is in the Champions League.

At Molineux, Man United were fortunate to end the match with ten men.

VAR saved Swedish centre-half Victor Lindelof from being sent off against Wolves.

In the final stages of the game, Lindelof took out Diogo Jota.

Initially, referee Martin Atkinson showed the Man United centre-half a red card.

The implication was that Lindelof had denied Jota a goal scoring opportunity with a reckless foul.

However the official ended up changing his mind.

Lindelof’s red was downgraded to a yellow card after the referee consulted with VAR.

What Victor Lindelof said to the Wolves bench

While VAR was being consulted, Lindelof expressed a bit of anger towards the Wolves bench.

Of course Wolves have strong Portuguese contingent, starting with their manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Prior to playing for Man United, Lindelof was on the books of Benfica.

It’s clear the Swede learned a fair amount of Portuguese during his days with Benfica, as Lindelof was spotted swearing at the Wolves bench. He said:

Vai tomar no cu, vai tomar no cu, filho da puta!

That broadly translates to “go f**k yourself, son of a bitch!”

Wolves 2 – Man United 1

Wolves won the cup tie after two goals in six second half minutes.

Raul Jimenez opened in the 70th before Diogo Jota doubled the advantage.

Marcus Rashford scored late on for Man United.
