The position of Manchester United on appealing Casemiro’s red card against Crystal Palace

Manchester United may consider appealing Casemiro’s red card, according to Erik ten Hag, after the Brazilian was dismissed during the team’s victory over Crystal Palace.

Bruno Fernandes gave United the lead, and Marcus Rashford doubled the advantage early in the second half.

The Red Devils appeared to be on track for a simple victory until Casemiro was sent off with 20 minutes remaining after a VAR review revealed that he had grabbed Will Hughes by the neck.

Andre Marriner was dispatched to the pitchside monitor and, after reviewing the situation, decided to dismiss Casemiro.

However, Marriner did not examine a second angle of the incident that appears to show Casemiro grabbing Hughes’ shirt before the two laugh off the incident.

If his suspension stands, Casemiro would miss two matches against Leeds United and one against Leicester City.

But Ten Hag, who admits Casemiro’s hold on Hughes was imprudent, believes the team may appeal the verdict.

What’s trending


‘First of all, we have to deal with it and we will do, but it is not right,’ Ten Hag said.

‘It shouldn’t have happened. And last week, VAR doesn’t do anything about the tackle (on Christian Eriksen by Andy Carroll), but this was avoidable and because in this incident there have to be consequences and they are inconsistent and that is not right, that is not fair against us.

‘We have to think about [appealing]. But be fair, we have seen when you’re freezing (the frame), Casemiro is crossing the line. But many more players were crossing the line there.

‘We get also some warnings about our team reacting like this and I think you have to do it, you have to protect each other but we want to keep our standards and values at Man United, keep them high.

‘We can’t cross lines but we have to stick together and, yes, we have to stand for each other, yes.’
