Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Bruno Lage has provided an explanation for his post-match coming together with Leeds United counterpart Jesse Marsch on Saturday evening.
Wolves, of course, made the trip to Yorkshire earlier today.
In their Premier League season opener, the Midlands outfit were tasked with getting the better of an altogether new-look Leeds side.
And, with just six minutes on the clock, such efforts looked very much on track, upon Daniel Podence lashing home Hwang Hee-chan’s headed layoff to open the game’s scoring.
Hosts Leeds, though, gradually worked their way back into proceedings, first levelling things up courtesy of Rodrigo, before Rayan Aït-Nouri’s own goal turned the clash firmly on its head.
And this was how things remained through the final whistle, as Wolves were forced to face up to an opening day defeat.
The drama, however, did not end there.
As alluded to above, on the back of proceedings being brought to a close at Elland Road, the respective managers were spotted in a heated altercation on the touchline:
Speaking to the media post-match, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his coming together with counterpart Marsch was put to Wolves boss Bruno Lage.
And the Portuguese was not at all shy in confirming that Marsch was responsible for the kind of comments which, as far as he is concerned, you simply ‘cannot say’:
“Nothing against the manager, but I heard something I didn’t like,” Lage began. “There are some things, in my opinion, that you cannot say.”
