Manchester United midfielder Casemiro is facing a four-game ban after receiving a straight red card during Sunday’s goalless draw with Southampton.
The Brazilian was originally given a yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor for a first-half challenge on Southampton midfielder Carlos Alcaraz, but it was upgraded to a red after VAR Andre Marriner advised Taylor to watch the monitor.
Casemiro was visibly upset as he left the Old Trafford pitch and now faces missing Man Utd’s next four games as it is his second red card of the season, having been sent off against Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign.
Casimero will next be available domestically for Manchester United on April 15 when they travel to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. His ban does not include European matches so he will be available for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Real Betis.
Casimero was sent off after 34 minutes but Ten Hag’s side were able to hold out for a 0-0 draw to stay third in the Premier League.
The 31-year-old picked up the first straight red of his time in Europe’s top leagues in last month’s 2-1 win against Crystal Palace and is now facing a four-match ban for his sending off.
