'It's not fair': Wolves forward Matheus Cunha hits out at the number of controversial refereeing decisions going against his side this season

www.dailymail.co.uk, April 25, 2024
Wolves forward Matheus Cunha admitted the amount of refereeing decisions going against his side this season felt like it was 'not fair'. They were at the centre of more VAR controversy in Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat to 10-man Bournemouth when under-fire referee Stuart Attwell ruled out Hee Chan Hwang's second-half goal for an off-the-ball incident involving Cunha and Justin Kluivert. It was not spotted in real time nor did it look to be interfering with play, but Attwell had little choice but to overlook it once he had been advised to go to the pitchside monitor by VAR Darren England.

Wolves boss Gary O'Neil refuses to criticise Stuart Attwell after coming under fire AGAIN for disallowing Hwang Hee-chan's goal against Bournemouth - just days after VAR controversy with Nottingham Forest

www.dailymail.co.uk, April 25, 2024
Wolves boss Gary O'Neil offered his sympathy to referee Stuart Attwell after the beleaguered match official was embroiled in more controversy in Bournemouth's 1-0 win at Molineux. Attwell has been in the spotlight for his role as VAR in denying Nottingham Forest three penalties in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Everton, which led Forest to insinuate bias as he supports relegation rivals Luton. And controversy followed him around after he adjudged Matheus Cunha to have fouled Justin Kluivert in an off-the-ball incident in the build-up to Hee Chan Hwang's second-half equaliser, which looked to have cancelled out Antoine Semenyo's first-half opener.
