Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo could face FA punishment following Saturday’s last-gasp victory over Leicester City.
The Telegraph report that Nuno was sent off by referee Chris Kavanagh for his over-elaborate celebration of Jota’s stoppage-time winner.
The 44-year-old proceeded to join in the players’ celebrations by the corner flag at Molineux, despite that fact that managers are not permitted to leave their technical areas.
Kavanagh will send his match report to bosses today, who will take his reflections into considerations before deciding whether the Portuguese should be charged with misconduct.
The Wolves boss is unlikely to contest any charge and could face a touchline ban.
The goal was the third of Jota’s hat-trick, making him the youngest Portuguese player to achieve the feat in the history of the Premier League.
After the match, the 22-year-old spoke of his surprise of seeing his manager next to him.
I was down on the pitch celebrating and I heard something and I thought ‘who is this guy! Then I saw him get up and run away. In games like this everyone goes crazy. The feelings go high and it is hard to control. It is hard to control your feelings in a game like this. When you score the winning goal in the last minute he [Nuno] couldn’t control his emotions.
