Two expulsions in his last three games has suffered Casemiro in the Premier League. The Brazilian player saw the direct red card again this Sunday in the match between Manchester United and Southampton for a very hard tackle and will be sanctioned with four games without playing.
The move took place in minute 34. Casemiro went to steal the ball from Carlos Alcaraz, but he did so with his studs in front and at the height of the Southampton player’s shin guard. The referee Anthony Taylor was called by the VAR and, seeing the action, he did not hesitate: He sent the ex-Madridista to the locker room.
The midfielder did not protest the red card, aware that the action had been excessive and deserving of expulsion. Seeing the cardboard, Casemiro took the punishmentembraced with his partner Antony, wiped away a tear that fellapologized to Carlos Alcaraz and head down went to the locker room after receiving consolation from David de Gea.
It was precisely the Spanish goalkeeper the hero of the matchas his saves saved a point for the red devilswho finally drew a goalless draw against Southampton.
Casemiro, who was already sent off in the match against Crystal Palace, then missed three games and will now be sanctioned with four games without playing in an unprecedented losing streak in his career.
