Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were left feeling furious with the officials after they failed to send off an Espanyol player for his antics during last night’s Europa League clash.
During a melee in the first-half, Ander Iturraspe clashed with Diogo Jota with the former seemingly head-butting the Wolves man. However, after the incident went to VAR, the 30-year-old Spaniard was only handed a yellow card, much to the bemusement of supporters (via BBC).
One fan labelled the decision as ‘ridiculous’.

However, it didn’t seem to trouble Jota, who notched up his second-consecutive hat-trick in this season’s competition, having already scored three goals against Besiktas in matchday six. The win over the La Liga side means the Molineux Stadium outfit have now won 10 of their last 11 home games across all European competitions, a run stretching back to October 1973. Fans were left scratching their heads over the incident as they lashed out at the officials. Let’s take a look at some of the tweets:
