LEICESTER, England (Reuters) - Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo said he would prefer the referee on the pitch to make the decision rather than have VAR make the calls after his side lost 1-0 to Leicester City on Sunday thanks to a Jamie Vardy penalty.

Leicester went top of the Premier League despite Vardy missing a second spot-kick, but it was the first, awarded for handball, that bothered the Wolves coach.
