Wolverhampton Wanderers could only manage a goalless draw at home to Manchester United on Saturday evening – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter slammed defender Ruben Vinagre for his performance.
Wolves drew 0-0 at Molineux against their Premier League opponents in the FA Cup third round, which means the teams will lock horns again in a replay at Old Trafford.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were nowhere near their fluent best going forward in the contest, while United weren’t much better.
Raul Jimenez and Marcus Rashford were both substituted on respectively for each team to give an attacking boost, but the deadlock was never broken and Matt Doherty saw a goal ruled out for the hosts after the ball hit his hand.
A selection of Wolves supporters on social media singled out Vinagre for criticism for his display in the cup.
The 20-year-old left wing-back didn’t have too much defensive work to do, but going forward he was sloppy with his final ball.
He was replaced late on by teammate Jonny Otto, who had more of an attacking look about him during his cameo.
A selection of Wolves supporters on social media were frustrated with the Portuguese speed machine for his latest performance.
Here are some Wolves fans on Vinagre:

Think what saves Vinagre is that he hardly plays and never gets a run in the team so one game he looks a worldie and the next he’s rubbish

Vinagre will be a hell of a player once he discovers some sort of end product. Bit like Adama before this season. Needs to step up though #wwfc

90 minutes of my life I wont get back, performance flat, atmosphere flat. Vinagre and Neto poor down the left. Now another game we have to play… #wwfc

Neto – dreadful, Vinagre – dreadful, Dendonker – dreadful again!!! Traore weaving his magic with nobody on the end. Surely Cotrone can’t be any worse than Neto? #WWFC
