Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo set to be punished after Leicester

Wolves 4 – Leicester 3

Wolves started the weekend’s round of Premier League fixture with a thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester.

Leicester, who were 2-0 and 3-2 down at Molineux, thought they’d earned a point when Wes Morgan headed home an 87th minute leveller.

But Wolves won the match in dramatic circumstances as Diogo Jota completed his hat-trick in injury time.

After Jota scored his winner, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo ran onto the pitch to celebrate with his players.

Nuno was sent off by referee Christopher Kavanagh, however the Times on Monday suggest that Nuno will face further punishment from the FA.

Nuno Espirito Santo set to be punished

The problem for Nuno is his wrap-sheet.

The Portuguese boss has already been punished on two previous occasions by the FA during his time at Wolves.

Accordingly, the Times believe that Nuno will be sanctioned after his behaviour against Leicester:

The FA is awaiting Kavanagh’s report but sources suggest that Nuno, 44, could face additional sanctions.

Nuno was charged with misconduct by the FA after being dismissed in a 2-1 victory away to Bristol City on December 30, 2017, and was also sent from the touchline during a 5-1 win over Bolton Wanderers on November 25 of the same year.

The Times steer clear of outlining what punishment may be slapped on Nuno.

Will it be a fine? Or will Nuno be hit with a touchline ban?
