Wolverhampton Wanderers have been handed a suspended £25,000 fine for being in breach of Rules E.20 and Rule B.13.

In English that means we’ve had a slap on the wrists for Mick McCarthy’s decision to make 10 changes against Manchester United back in December.

‘We are obviously disappointed but we respect the Premier League’s ruling especially as they have now used our case as a clear warning to all other clubs, some of whom have made similar changes to their teams in Premier League matches in the past, that this is not acceptable in the future.’ Chief Executive Jez Moxey told Wolves Official Website.

While Mick McCarthy added: ‘It was never my intention to break any of the Premier League’s rules, only to pick a team that was in the best position to get a result.

‘I’m pleased the matter is now closed.’

Vital Wolves Comment: This decision will no doubt annoy some supporters from other teams who wanted us to have points deducted and all sorts of other ludicrous penalties.
