Jesse Marsch and Bruno Lage speak out on bust-up after Leeds United beat Wolves

Wolves manager Bruno Lage has accused Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch of saying ‘things that we cannot say’ following their touchline bust-up at Elland Road on Saturday.

Leeds registered their first win of the new Premier League season after Wolves took the lead through Daniel Podence’s early goal.

Rodrigo levelled the score for Leeds before Rayan Ait-Nouri’s own goal sealed the three point for the hosts.

But after the full-time whistle, Lage and Marsch were involved in a heated exchange before the Wolves boss headed down the tunnel.

Giving his version of the bust-up at full time, Lage said: ‘In the first half, there were things that we cannot say, especially in these days, and I heard that, so if someone wants to apologise to me, it should be in that moment, not in the end when you’ve won the game.

‘There were plenty of moments between the first-half and then end of the game when we could have shaken hands and apologised, it didn’t happen and after in the end it’s more difficult to accept because there was a long time to do that.

‘There’s nothing wrong between the managers, life goes on and now we look forward to play the next game against Fulham.’

Speaking about the altercation with Lage, Marsch said: ‘It’s normal in some ways.

‘I respect Bruno a lot. He does a great job with his team, so no problem.’

When it was suggested that he and Lage had two confrontations in the game, Marsch said: ‘Well, you can go back to it at Wolves last year. There’s emotion in these moments.

‘I wanted to be respectful afterwards but it didn’t quite go that way. I’m okay. I think he’s okay too.’
