Southampton Manager Gives Verdict On Casemiro Red Card
Southampton Manager Gives Verdict On Casemiro: When questioned about Casemiro’s dismissal for Manchester United on Sunday, Southampton manager Ruben Selles stated it was pointless to criticise the referees.
The VAR-assisted dismissal at Old Trafford marked a significant turning point in the game, forcing United to accept a share of the spoils. Anthony Taylor initially cautioned Casemiro for a challenge on Carlos Alcaraz.
Yet after being summoned to the monitor, Taylor made the choice to elevate the booking to a straight red. Erik ten Hag criticised the officials’ judgement after the game for their choices.
“What I think is the inconsistency, players no longer know what is the policy,” he remarked. We witnessed it in the Premier League yesterday when Leicester and Chelsea played without the use of video review.
Southampton Manager Gives Verdict On Casemiro:
“It’s going to be on the line today. Afterwards there are two penalty situations, but they do not result in a goal. What is the policy, especially since the first one was a blatant and evident handball? “Casemiro is spanning European games, over 500 games he never had a red card,” the Dutchman continued. He now has two.
“Consider that. He plays fairly while being tough.
“It’s also questionable since he’s acting fairly in this situation, just like he did against Crystal Palace. Everyone who understands anything about football is aware that it looks horrible when it is frozen, as is obvious.
“But, everyone who is knowledgeable about football and has played at the highest level understands what is right and wrong. Casemiro is a pretty fair player, I can assure you of that. Fair but firm.”
