Wolfsburg coach Armin Veh admits he intends to talk to Grafite about his ill-discipline following the striker's red card against Besiktas.
The Bundesliga champions were made to rue several missed chances as they could not break the deadlock in a UEFA Champions League 0-0 stalemate, which concluded with star striker Grafite being sent off after catching Besiktas' Kas in the face.
It has been a miserable week for Grafite after he lost his place in Wolves' starting XI for the first time in 15 months last weekend after he had criticised Veh for substituting him in previous games.
The pair held clear the air talks but Grafite further blotted his copybook on Wednesday via an incident that has not sat well with his manager.
"We will have to talk about it because he shouldn't be doing something like that," said Veh. "You can give a red card for that."
Wolfburg's next Champions League game sees them travel to Besiktas for a return fixture they now need to win to keep up the pressure on Manchester United at the top of Group B and try to keep third-placed CSKA Moscow at a safe distance behind them.
"We are capable of winning away from home and that is what we now have to do in Istanbul," added Veh.
"We can be happy with the game today, but obviously not with the result because we wanted three points."
Wolfsburg trail group leaders United by five points, but have a one-point advantage over Moscow and remain three clear of Besiktas at the midway stage of the group phase.
