Manchester United make key decision on Casemiro’s red card

Manchester United have made a decision not to appeal Casemiro’s red card that will see him serve a four match ban on the sidelines.

The ban is four game because this was his second straight red card this season.


The Brazilian holding midfielder was shown matching orders by referee Anthony Talyor for a bad tackle against Carlos Alcaraz in their goalless draw at home against Southampton.

Talyor had issued Casemiro with a yellow a card but after a VAR review, the decision was upgraded to a red card the reduced the red devils to ten men.

He will be available for selection when United host Real Bestis in the return leg of the UEFA Europa League on Thursday but will miss the Emirates FA Cup Quarterfinal Sunday when Erik ten Hag commands his side against Fulham.

The club don’t think that an appeal will have the decision overturned and that’s why they’ve made the decision not to file an appeal.

He will also miss Premier League games against Newcastle United, who they recently beat by 2-0 at Wembley to win the Carabao Cup, another against Brentford and Everton, all in the aftermath of the international break.

Speaking about the incident on Sunday, Ten Hag expressed his disappointment saying; “It is inconsistent.”

“The referees are coming at the start of the season with a policy: we are the Premier League, we want intensity and Casemiro, across European games, over 500, he never had a red card but now, twice. He plays tough but he’s fair,” he added.

“Same as against Crystal Palace, so it’s very debatable. When you freeze it [Sunday’s challenge], it looks bad. Everyone who knows something about football, knows what is bad, what is fair and Casemiro is a fair player. Tough, but fair, and it shows over 500 games in big leagues and he was never sent off. He’s disappointed.”
