Wolves fans are fuming with Ryan Bennett after Braga error

Wolves’ Europa League Group K campaign got off to the worst possible start as they were defeated 1-0 by Braga at Molineux on Thursday evening.

It is now a third straight defeat for Nuno Santo and his side after successive Premier League losses to Everton and Chelsea in the weeks leading up to this tie.

The visitors had rarely threatened in the match, recording just one shot on target before they took the lead in the 71st minute.

Braga pounced on Ryan Bennett’s blunder as the returning centre-back handed the ball straight to Wenderson Galeno.

The winger then mounted a charge at goal before cutting it across to the edge of the box for Ricardo Horta to slam home the winner.

Wolves tried to salvage a point with a late onslaught, but it was to no avail, so their first game in the main stage of a European competition since 1980 ended in a miserable defeat.

Bennett, who was surprisingly dropped for their game against Chelsea, was brought back into the lineup after they leaked five against Frank Lampard’s side, but his error has quite possibly cost them a result here.

Several fans took to social media to slam the 29-year-old following his performance.

One pleaded for the defender to get out of Wolves while another brandished him ‘too slow’ and ‘too sloppy.’

A further member of the Molineux crowd believed the club should have spent big in the summer on improving their defensive ranks.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
