Man Utd fans accuse Wolves supporters of being hypocrites over Andre Onana penalty incident

Man Utd fans accuse Wolves supporters of being hypocrites over Andre Onana penalty incident

Manchester United fans have referenced an incident involving Wolves from last season.

Manchester United fans have accused Wolves supporters of being hypocrites following last season's incident involving their goalkeeper Jose Sa amid the controversy surrounding Andre Onana.

Man United beat Wolves 1-0 in their Premier League season opener on Monday.

Gary O'Neil's side were unfortunate to not get a point from the Old Trafford clash as they had a staggering 23 shots against Erik ten Hag's team.

The visitors were also denied a penalty when Onana clattered into Sasa Kalajdzic in stoppage time.

The Man United keeper failed at his attempt to catch the ball as he smashed into the towering striker, with VAR checking the incident.

However, the on-field decision remained as Simon Hooper booked O'Neil, who angrily remonstrated the call on the touchline.

The reaction from the Wolves camp over the incident between Onana and Kalajdzic has angered Man United fans on social media as they referenced a similar moment from last season.

Twitter user @LeeMUFC7 shared a clip of Sa clashing with Rasmus Kristensen during Wolves' meeting against Leeds United as people called out the hypocrisy.

One Twitter user wrote: "See. These are never given. This is more of a penalty than the one from last night. It was the keeper and one other player. While with Onana it was three players involved. Never a penalty."

A second tweeted: "Only gets made into a big deal when it’s us lool, conformation bias from rival fans."

A third added: "At least refs are consistently bad. Both are stonewall penos. Keepers get away with murder in the box."

A fourth said: "Bet the refs weren’t dropped after that decision were they different story when it’s United."

Another commented: "I missed the same outrage for this last season?"

Speaking after his side's defeat, O'Neil revealed he received an apology from PGMOL's Jon Moss over the penalty incident.

"We have just spoken to Jon Moss and fair play to him for coming straight out and apologising and saying it was a blatant penalty and should have been given," he said in his post-match press conference.

"I spent the afternoon with him [on Monday], gave up a lot of my day and preparation around trying to understand the new guidelines and trying not to get myself booked on my first game with the new guidelines, which I failed in.

"Fair play to Jon for saying it was a clear and obvious error and he cannot believe that the on-field ref did not give it, cannot believe that VAR didn't intervene.

"It probably made me feel worse actually because once you know you are right you feel worse about leaving with nothing."
