Man Utd fans ask FA to rescind Casemiro's red card

Angry Man Utd fans ask FA to rescind Casemiro's red card vs Palace in light of new evidence

February 4, 2023 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Supporters of Manchester United are calling for the sanction imposed on the Brazilian for his involvement in the scuffle with Palace players.

Fans of Manchester United have issued a call to the Premier League to overturn the red received by Casemiro in their win over Crystal Palace following the emergence of new evidence. The Old Trafford faithful has blamed the inconsistency of the Video Assistant Referee for the turn of events, citing that the real intention of the player in the scuffle was not accurately depicted.

On Saturday after, another keenly contested affair between Manchester United and Crystal Palace went right down to the wire at Old Trafford. An early goal from the penalty spot by Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford's second half strike had given the host a comfortable lead. However, they almost suffered a capitulation after Jeffery Schlupp reduced the deficit to one with his 76th minute strike, paving the way for the visitors to press on for an equalizer.

The nervy ending for Erik ten Hag's men was initiated by the 70th minute sending off of Casemiro following his involvement in a scuffle which began after Antony was fouled by Jeffery Schlupp. The former Real Madrid superstar received his marching orders for purportedly strangling Palace's Will Hughes while trying to break up the fight in a review by VAR.

Referee Andre Marriner's decision to dismiss Casemiro has not gone down well with fans of United, with some insisting that the player deserved a lesser punishment as his actions were grossly misinterpreted. In a video that has since emerged on social media, a different angle showed that the hands of the Brazilian international was barely around the neck of Hughes. Both players were also seen in an embrace afterward, an act which some believe corroborate with the former's efforts to help cool tempers.

Meanwhile, some are also of the view that Palace striker Jordan Ayew deserved to be hit with a retrospective punishment for also strangling Fred in the heat of the moment. The Ghanaian international's action went unnoticed by VAR, while both Antony and Schlupp were respectively shown the yellow card for starting the fracas.

It looks unlikely that Manchester United will appeal the decision taken against Casemiro as Erik ten Hag admitted in his post-match press conference that the Brazilian crossed a line. The former Madrid star is set to miss back-to-back games against Leeds United in the Premier League as well as the clash with Leicester at Old Trafford in two weeks time.

Here are a few reactions by Manchester United fans with regards to Casemiro's red card incident:
