Welcoming Southampton at Old Trafford, Man Utd must play with 10 people for most of the match. In the 32nd minute, Casemiro had a dangerous situation with Carlos Alcaraz. Referee Anthony Taylor showed a yellow card to warn the Brazilian midfielder.
However, VAR asked Mr. Taylor to review the slow motion. Immediately, Mr. Taylor changed Casemiro’s penalty from a yellow card to a red card. For the second time since the beginning of the season, Casemiro was shown a red card in the Premier League.
According to the rules, Casemiro was banned for 4 matches. Recently, the Red Devils made an official announcement about this case.
Specifically, Man Ud said: “We have decided not to appeal Casemiro’s red card in the 0-0 draw with Southampton.
The penalty was a four-match ban because the Brazil international was also sent off in the win against Crystal Palace. At that time, VAR was again used after a dispute occurred between many players from both teams.”
Thus, Casemiro will miss the FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham, the trip to Newcastle, as well as the two Premier League matches against Brentford and Everton.
Casemiro is still eligible to play in the European Cup, as coach Ten Hag’s side attend the Europa League round of 16 second leg against Real Betis
