The aftermath is strong over the exit of Casemiro (Man Utd).
Casemiro was sent off in the 25th minute of the second half of the home game against Crystal Palace in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 5th (hereinafter Korean time). 메이저놀이터
Players from both teams clashed as Crystal Palace’s Jeffrey Schloop roughly restrained Manchester United’s Anthony. Casemiro also joined. He was discovered after VAR (video review) in a pose as if he was strangling Will Hughes with both hands. The referee pulled out a red card.
Manchester United took third place by beating Crystal Palace 2-1 with Bruno Fernandez’s relay goal in the 7th minute of the first half and Marcus Rashford’s relay goal in the 17th minute of the second half. However, Casemiro’s exit is disappointing.
Casemiro will miss three matches, including two consecutive matches against Leeds on the 9th and 12th, and a home match against Leicester City on the 19th. Casemiro, who has built his nest for Manchester United this season, is the core of the midfield. His gap could be a fatal blow to the ranking race.
However, Manchester United fans are confident that Casemiro’s sending off ban will be reversed after a new video surfaced. Casemiro and Hughes were captured from different angles as they hugged and smiled the moment the conflict was sorted out. Fans are claiming that there was less violent behavior given the reaction of the two.
It is also a hot topic on social media. Fans pointed out that ‘Man United will be overturned if they appeal’, ‘Casemiro and Hughes are laughing’, ‘The first instance of a player being sent off for violent behavior and a ‘assaulted’ player not reacting and hugging a striker’ .
Manager Eric ten Haag was also upset. “Not only Casemiro, but Crystal Palace and Manchester United players all reacted. One of them showed more action than Casemiro,” he said. “The judgment has to be consistent.”
