- Manchester United manager unhappy after Southampton draw
- Midfielder will miss four domestic matches
Erik ten Hag branded the officiating during Manchester United’s goalless draw with Southampton as “inconsistent” after Casemiro was sent off early on in the contest, which subsequently means the midfielder missing four domestic matches.
Anthony Taylor made the decisions after being requested by the VAR to check the pitchside monitor having initially given Casemiro a yellow for a challenge on Carlos Alcaraz. Casemiro’s studs took the ball then connected with the player’s shin. It was the 31-year-old Brazilian’s second red card in eight matches after previously never receiving one during his time at Real Madrid and Porto.
