Erik Ten Hag angered by Casemiro’s red card in Man Utd win

Erik ten Hag criticizes ‘inconsistent’ VAR after Manchester United game Casemiro was the only player sent off after a major scuffle in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace. Bruno Fernandes’ early penalty and a Marcus Rashford The strike put United into their 13th consecutive home win in all competitions. But Ten Hag’s team had to survive a tense final at Old Trafford after Brazilian midfielder Casemiro was sacked before Palace’s Jeffrey Schlupp scored to reduce the deficit.

Right before his goal, Schlupp shoved the United winger Antony off the field, sparking a fight between both groups of players, which ended with Casemiro receiving a direct red card for violent behavior.

Referee Andre Marriner was advised by VAR to check the screen on the sidelines to review images of Casemiro grabbing Palace players Will Hughes by the throat.

Ten Hag said: “The first 70 minutes was really high form until the crash and then you see this team taking sides.

“It’s a good morale for the whole team and they don’t accept that one of our players could be seriously injured. That’s how Antony is treated.

“This team sticks together, but of course you have to control your emotions, but it’s really difficult in such a time.

“Then I saw two teams fighting, I saw two teams where the players, some players, crossed the line and then one player was picked and sent off. For me, that wasn’t right. .”

United’s win cements their third place in the Premier League.

Gloss was sent off due to Casemiro’s red card and Ten Hag said Schlupp took a “huge risk” in pushing Antony off the field, saying he may have suffered a “serious injury”.

The Dutchman also thinks Palace’s Jordan Ayew should have “certainly” been sent off for his actions in the ensuing fight, with VAR’s recent inconsistency angering him. .

“You bring it up, but it’s one of the players who played even worse than Casemiro,” Ten Hag said of Ayew.

“With Casemiro, you freeze the moment and he’ll cross the line there, but I’m sure he is.

“You have to be consistent as a VAR. Last week we missed Christian Eriksen (3 months out) due to a rough foul. There is no interference from VAR.

“At Crystal Palace (last month), (jeans-Phillipe) Mateta is elbowing (Lisandro) Martinez, he will be playing for two weeks with an eyebrow mark and (VAR) no interference. I don’t think this is right.”

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira is also furious with the run.

Vieira stormed into Marriner in full-time, but when asked what he had told officials, he replied: “I don’t want to talk about it.”
