Wolves fans react after Preston manager blasts Wanderers’ ‘soft foreigners’

Wolves fans have hit back at claims by Preston gaffer Alex Neil that Wanderers’ players are ‘soft foreigners’.

Playoff-chasing Preston drew 1-1 with the league leaders at Deepdale on Saturday, but the Lancashire club were a goal ahead before their midfielder John Welsh was sent off for a second bookable offence and Wolves’ Costa brought the visitors level.

Neil thought that both yellow cards were harsh on his player.

He said: “I thought the two bookings were soft to be honest. They’ve got a lot of soft foreign players haven’t they?

“I think a lot of them go down and look as if they’re really hurt and makes the referee think the challenge is worse than it actually is.”

Wolves fans refused to take Neil’s remarks lying down, though. Here are a few of their responses to the Preston boss’ remarks…

One fan even seemed to make reference to Neil’s own disciplinary record. Neil has been sent off for a second bookable offence three times in his SPL career, which is tied for second most in league history according to Transfrmarket:
