EFL will meet with Wolves over rivals’ concerns

The English Football League is aware of concerns surrounding Wolves’ connections to agent Jorge Mendes and will deal with them appropriately, Press Association Sport understands. The Midlands club lead the Sky Bet Championship by six points after a 3-0 victory over Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday night. Following that game, Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani tweeted: “We have our own problems but we should play in a fair competition.” He claimed there were “evident benefits” of Mendes having links at Wolves, whose manager Nuno Espirito Santo is among his clients, with Radrizzani suggesting they included “top European clubs giving players with options to buy”. Radrizzani added: “Congratulations to the best team but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams.” It is understood those concerns, and others raised separately earlier in the week, are being looked at by the EFL. It is possible that the issue could be on the agenda at an EFL board meeting later today. Wolves boss Nuno was quick to defend his club in light of Radrizzani’s remarks, insisting they “compete fairly”. The Portuguese said: “First of all, I don’t care. Secondly, what we see on the pitch is a group of hard-working people. “My only focus is on the game. To go beyond that, it doesn’t affect us. We don’t care because it has nothing to do with us. We compete fairly and we show when we win, we deserve it.” The EFL said it would meet with Wolves bosses. An EFL statement read: “At its meeting today the EFL board considered at length the matter of the relationship between Wolverhampton Wanderers, majority shareholder of the Club, Fosun and Jorge Mendes, in light of the recent concerns raised by a number of clubs. “It was agreed that the EFL executive will meet with the management of the club to reiterate the requirements of our regulations and those of the FA and will report back to the board in due course. “It should be noted that the club was explicitly informed in July 2016 of all the requirements it was expected to meet as part of the change of control, and appropriate arrangements were put in place to ensure compliance. “The club has confirmed that the undertakings given at the time remain in place and are being complied with.”
