EPL: He let him down – Redknapp names Man United’s star that caused Casemiro ban


Former Liverpool man, Jamie Redknapp has said that Casemiro was let down by his teammate, Bruno Fernandes

The Brazilian, who has immensely helped the Red Devils in the midfield this season, will not be available for their clash against Arsenal at the weekend.

Going into the game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, the Brazilian International was one booking away from FA suspension, having accumulated four bookings this season.

On 80 minutes, the Brazilian brought down Wilfried Zaha as the Palace star threatened to burst past him.

Prior to that, his midfield partner Fernandes was unable to win the ball, beaten to it by Tyrick Mitchell who brushed past a weak challenge from the former Benfica man.

“From Manchester United’s point of view, it couldn’t have got any worse,” he told Sky Sports.

“We spoke before the game about Casemiro, don’t get a yellow card. Don’t get booked, don’t get in any confrontations, he is so important and they need him on Sunday.

“It was a moment of madness, you can see he was furious with his teammate Bruno Fernandes, he jumped out of a challenge and that is how he ended up getting booked. It could have been a red card.

“Mikel Arteta would have been jumping around his living room, they [United] have got no one who can do like he does in the team.

“If looks could kill, they just couldn’t get over it.”
