Wolves fans react to strange Patrick Cutrone and Ruben Neves penalty incident

Wolves continued their rich vein of Europa League form with an emphatic victory in Armenia over FC Pyunik on Thursday evening.

Raul Jimenez netted a brace in between returning right-back Matt Doherty’s 29th-minute opener and Ruben Neves’ injury-time penalty – though the spot-kick was not without some sort of controversy which has left many fans at Molineux debating the incident.

The spot-kick was won by £16m summer arrival Patrick Cutrone, who was handed his debut in the 63rd minute, but was taken by their regular set-piece man Neves even though the Italian wanted to have the honours.

However, it appeared as though the Portuguese pulled rank instead after some debate and eventually slotted home the penalty himself.

One supporter felt that the incident showed why Neves is a leader in the making whilst another lauded the decision by claiming there was no time for sentiment as scoring the fourth goal was more important.

Others would have liked their new man to take it as a further fan said you want your new striker to score as early as possible in a game you’ve already won. This was echoed by another who believed it would have been a confidence boost.
