Brentford head coach Dean Smith told the Express & Star that Wolves’ Joao Teixeira was a bit too theatrical for his tastes.
The Bees fell 3-1 to Wolves this weekend with a brace from Teixeira and one from Ivan Cavaleiro cancelling out a goal from Sullay Kaikai. However while it seems from looking at the result it was a simple win for Wolves, the game was filled with controversy with numerous calls for penalties turned down by the referee.
Wolves’ head coach Walter Zenga believed that they should have had a spot kick when Teixeira went down in the box due to a challenge from Maxime Colin and while Smith agreed with that decision, saying that Teixeira was a bit too theatrical in the way he went down, he too was angered as he believed that Brentford should have had a penalty as he thought that Matt Doherty handled the ball in the box.
Following the game, and stoke up the flames for the next time to the two teams face each other, Smith said: “Theirs was a good call from the ref. We watched it back and he actually kicks the back of Maxime’s leg, who had got in front of him.”
“He goes down a bit theatrical, as he did a number of times.”
“Ours was a blatant one for me. The fourth official said he saw it hit the Wolves player, but he thought it was his head rather than his outstretched arm.”
Brentford will hope to move on from this and play well in their match against Reading during the week.
