Casemiro, Manchester United midfielder, will miss the next four domestic competition matches, as reported by the English club itself on its website, for the expulsion with a direct red card this Sunday against Southampton at Old Trafford on the twenty-seventh day of the ‘Premier League’.
His second expulsion in a month and a half came for a tackle on Carlos Jonás Alcaraz for which the footballer first received a yellow card from referee Anthony Taylor.
The Brazilian player left the field crying after receiving the red card that will keep him away for the next four dates, which will be a sensitive drop for Erik Ten Hag’s team.
Casemiro was never sent off in Spanish football or in the Champions League with Real Madrid. Now the Brazilian has been expelled for the second time in the same season with United after arriving at the Red Devils in the summer market.
The subsequent review in the VAR of the action and of the referee himself on the monitor at the foot of the field aggravated the sanction up to a direct red card in minute 34.
“The midfielder will now have to serve a four-game suspension in national competitions, beginning with next Sunday’s clash against Fulham at Old Trafford in the FA Cup,” United announced, specifying his absence due to suspension in the Premier against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton; the first as a visitor and the following two as a local.
Before all that, Casemiro will be available for Erik Ten Hag for the second leg of the Europa League round of 16 against Betis at the Benito Villamarín.
Manchester United was 0-0 with Southampton on the last date of the Premier League and adds its second game without winning after the crushing 7-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend.
