Gary O'Neil's post-match interview after more VAR errors cost Wolves against Fulham has gone viral

Gary O’Neil’s post-match interview after VAR cost Wolverhampton Wanderers against Fulham has gone viral.

On Monday night, Wolves travelled to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham, who were winless in four matches heading into the match.

In what was an entertaining encounter, a late Willian penalty earned the hosts a vital 3-2 victory.

However, there were yet more VAR controversies that went against Wolves as both of Fulham’s penalties were debatable.

After the match, Wolves boss O’Neil told Sky Sports: “Bad luck keeps going against us. I've had a real, grown-up conversation.

“I'm trying to remain calm. I'm not angry with anybody. I'm not abusing anyone. It's just a conversation around, 'come on guys, it's six or seven points that have gone against us’.

“I'm managing a big football club here - the difference you're making to my reputation, the club's progression up the league, people's livelihoods is huge.”

When asked if he is expecting a call from the PGMOL or whether he will call them, O’Neil said: “I won't be calling anybody. What can I do?

“I've got two options. I keep behaving in the way that I should and make my players behave in the way we should. We respect everybody and the decision-making.

“Or we start to go, 'that's not working. We're going to have to make some noise'. They are the two decisions I have.”

He continued: “I've been really honest. I'd rather be a decent human being and answer things honestly but things need to get better. I can't accept us being on the wrong end of decisions as often as we are. That needs to get better.

“I've always been for VAR but I think it's causing a big problem at the moment. Maybe tonight has finally turned me against VAR. I thought it would probably help but it doesn't seem to be.”

Wolves will be back in action next weekend as they travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on league leaders Arsenal.
