Why will Casemiro miss four games for Man Utd?

MANCHESTER UNITED drew 0-0 with Southampton earlier today in an uninspiring performance at Old Trafford.

But Casemiro’s sending off midway through the first half certainly didn’t help their case.

United were looking to bounce back in the league following their 7-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool last week.

But they were unable to as relegation-battling Southampton proved to be a sterner test than expected.

Armel Bella-Kotchap in particular was brilliant for the Saints on a day where a point could prove vital come the end of the season.

But the story of the day was Casemiro’s red card for his tackle on Carlos Alcaraz.

Why will Casemiro be suspended for four games?

In the 34th minute of the game between United and Southampton, Casemiro was sent off for his challenge on Alcaraz.

The Brazilian midfielder went for the ball but his foot followed through and caught Alcaraz on the shin with his studs.

Originally, Casemiro was given a yellow card, but after a VAR review, the colour was changed to red.

The former Real Madrid man left the pitch inconsolable and in tears.

And now he will miss FOUR games rather than the usual three for a red card.

That is because it is Casemiro’s second red card of the season, following his red against Crystal Palace earlier this year.

Casemiro was sent off against the Eagles for grabbing Will Hughes’ throat during a scuffle, and he subsequently missed games against Leeds (two games) and Leicester.

But because Casemiro has picked up his second of the season, the usual punishment will be extended by one game to four.

The 31-year-old will now miss games against Fulham in the FA Cup and Newcastle, Brentford and Everton in the Premier League.
