‘Paul Scholes was right’ – Manchester United fans react as Casemiro sent off vs Southampton.

Posted by

This season, the Man United midfielder has received two Premier League red cards.

Once Casemiro received his second red card of the year, Manchester United supporters weren’t overly impressed.

During the first half of the Premier League match on Sunday, the 30-year-old was dismissed for a tackle on Southampton’s Carlos Alcaraz. When the Brazilian was found to have fouled the Saints player, United was kept to a 0-0 draw at the time.

The midfielder was first given a warning by referee Anthony Taylor, but the video assistant referee later upgraded the verdict to a red card. While Casemiro looked to win the ball, a severe foul was called for his high follow-through. After receiving a straight red card earlier this season against Crystal Palace, Casemiro will now miss four games.

It implies that he will miss the FA Cup encounter against Fulham and the Premier League games against Everton, Brentford, and Newcastle United on either side of the break. Due to the fact that domestic suspensions do not transfer over into European competition, he will be eligible to play against Real Betis on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 matchup.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, sacrificed center-forward Wout Weghorst in order to strengthen the midfield after going down to 10 men on Sunday. Scott McTominay was then introduced just before halftime.
