When Victor Lindelof swore at Wolves bench in fluent Portuguese

Manchester United crashed out of the FA Cup following a demoralising 2-1 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers here at the Molineux stadium.

Both the Wolves forward managed to get their names on the scoresheet before Marcus Rashford pulled one back in the dying moments.

After a very frustrating first half, both teams came out all guns blazing in an attempt to break the deadlock.

And it was the home side who managed to get their noses in the front through Raul Jimenez thanks to some silly defending.

Jimenez’s striking partner Diogo Jota soon managed to double the lead, this time thanks to a howler by Luke Shaw.

Things started to get heated soon after as the away side started pressing desperately for an equaliser.

But Wolves did manage to break free on a number of occasions and during one such occasion, Victor Lindelof came in hard on Diogo Jota.

The match referee Martin Atkinson took no time to give 24-year-old Swedish international marching orders by showing him a straight red card.

However, the VAR came to the rescue of the young defender and overruled the red card decision to convert it into a yellow.

And while both the teams were waiting for the VAR to make the decision, Lindelof seemed to be engaged in a rather heated face-off with the Wolves bench.

The defender appeared to be hurling foul content towards the Wolves bench in Portuguese which according to some major news agencies, means ” Go f**k yourself, son of a b***h.

Have a look at the footage here.

The Swedish international spent three seasons in Portugal during his tenure at Benfica and may have chosen the language over English to target the Wolves bench dominated by a number of Portuguese players.

There are no words from the FA on whether they are going to initiate disciplinary actions against Lindelof but if they do and the allegations turn out to be true, the Swedish international may end up serving some very stern punishments.
