Wolves: Fans rage at Mike Dean following controversial VAR decision during Leicester draw

Wolves: Fans rage at Mike Dean following controversial VAR decision during Leicester draw

Plenty of Wolves fans made sure they had their say on referee Mike Dean following their 0-0 draw against Leicester City on Friday.

Yet again, VAR stole the headlines as Willy Boly’s goal in the first half was ruled out for offside on a marginal technicality. The lines came out once more as Pedro Neto was deemed to be in an ineligible position by the length of a toe as he came to receive a short corner. BT Sport showed footage of Mike Dean being questioned by skipper Conor Coady as the players made their way into the tunnel at half-time.

The 26-year-old could be heard demanding Dean to explain the reasons why the goal was disallowed, but the referee was unaware of who was in the illegal position and was simply told in his earpiece to discount Boly’s first-half header. Understandably, supporters were furious with the Wirral-born official and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan believed the situation was “beyond a joke” after Dean did not appear to know what he was doing, while another described him as a “control freak”.
