Manchester United’s Brazilian midfielder lost his temper this Saturday in front of Crystal Palace.
Manchester United got the better of Crystal Palace this Saturday in the 22e lifting of the Premier League (2-1), thanks to goals signed Fernandes and Rashford. A result that allows the Red Devils to temporarily return to three lengths of the Citizens, second in the standings. With one downside, however: the expulsion of Casemiro in the middle of the second period.

At the origin of this not so trivial fact of the match when you know the importance of the Brazilian in the Mancunian collective, an altercation between Schlupp, the Eagles scorer in the last quarter of an hour, and Antony. The charge of the first on the second and the words that followed triggered a real scuffle. All-out battle that saw Casemiro lay both hands on Hughes’ neck…

The Auriverde quickly changed his mind, aware of the violence of his gesture, but this brief strangely did not escape the video assistance. Thus expelled, Casemiro will miss at least the next three matches of Manchester United – the minimum price in the event of a red card in England – but it is a safe bet that the disciplinary committee will crack down even more.
