Many Wolves fans have expressed their anger towards Marcal after Bruno Lage admitted he is unhappy with the defender’s “silly” mistake.
The Brazilain defender’s good start to the season came crashing down over the weekend as his poor performance was instrumental in Brentford running out 2-0 winners at Molineux.
Despite being warned by referee Darren England for grabbing hold of Ivan Toney during a corner, Marcal repeated the offence and dragged the striker down, resulting in Toney tucking the ball past Jose Sa to break the deadlock.
Marcal endured a difficult afternoon in the Black Country, completing only 33 of his 42 passes, making zero accurate crosses and losing the ball 13 times.
The left-back was eventually replaced by Daniel Podence in the 72nd minute, and Lage has since criticised the wing-back’s involvement in the penalty incident.
Wolves fans fume over Marcal performance
These Wolves fans took to Twitter to discuss Marcal’s error after their manager’s comments, with one fan claiming he ‘cannot defend at all’.
“Should of sent this plum out on loan cannot have two liability defenders in your defence”
“Hope he doesn’t play again for us. Not just for this mistake btw.”
“The biggest mistake was signing him in the first place. As soon as Johnny is back he needs to be cut loose and stick with Jonny and ait-nouri.”
“The guy is an absolute moron. He cannot defend at all and struggles to keep up with play. He was brought in as a cheap temporary cover for Jonny. Not because he was any good. So why are we relying on him when we have ait nouri.”
“Play ait nouri pls”
