Wolves boss O'Neil Charges for 'Threatening' Behavior after Loss to West Ham

Wolves boss Gary O'Neil has been charged by the Football Association over "improper behaviour" following his side's controversial home defeat to West Ham earlier this month.

Wolves saw Max Kilman's 99th-minute header disallowed after Tawanda Chirewa was deemed to be in an offside position and blocking West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski from making the save, therefore interfering with play.

Following the 2-1 defeat, O'Neil blasted the VAR decision calling the disallowed equaliser "one of the worst decisions I've ever witnessed".

The last-gasp decision led to chaotic scenes at full-time as a number of Wolves staff and players were booked for their protests - although manager O'Neil took himself down the tunnel in the immediate aftermath, having already been shown two yellow cards this season. Another would have seen him banned.

But the 40-year-old has now been charged by the FA for his behaviour around the referee's dressing room.
An FA statement read: "Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Gary O'Neil has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.1 following the Premier League fixture against West Ham United on Saturday 6 April 2024. 

"It's alleged that following the completion of the fixture, his language and/or behaviour in or around the match officials' changing rooms was improper and/or threatening.
"He has until Monday 15 April 2024 to respond to the charge."
