‘We will always be together’ – Antony sends emotional message to Casemiro after consoling Manchester United teammate on pitch after his red card against Fulham
Antony has expressed his backing for his fellow Manchester United player Casemiro after he received a red card during the match against Southampton. Initially, Casemiro was given a yellow card for a tackle on Carlos Alcaraz, but after a review by the VAR, it was changed to a red card.
Just one month after being sent off in a game against Crystal Palace, the former Real Madrid player was extremely upset when he received another red card in a match against Southampton, which ended in a 0-0 draw. As he left the field in tears, his teammate from Brazil, Antony, was the first to console him, and fans believed that Casemiro was telling him he would win the game for him. Casemiro will now be suspended for four games, meaning he will have missed eight of United’s last 16 domestic fixtures. Despite this setback, Antony sent a supportive message to his teammate on social media, saying that they will always be together and that they have a lot to look forward to.
Casemiro has been a key player for Manchester United, and his absence will be felt by the team. According to manager Erik ten Hag, Casemiro’s suspension is the result of inconsistent rules in England. Ten Hag also pointed out that during Casemiro’s nine-year stint at Real Madrid, he never received a straight red card despite playing over 330 games.
“What I think is the inconsistency, players don’t know anymore what is the policy.
“And I think it’s all across. We see it with Premier League yesterday: Leicester-Chelsea, the VAR is not coming on the line. Today, it’s coming on the line. And then it’s two penalty situations, but they don’t come on the line. Especially the first one, it was clear and obvious handball so what is the policy?”
