Erik ten Hag states that he is ‘unhappy’ with the refereeing after Casemiro red card

Posted by

Erik ten Hag has called for officials to be more consistent after Casemiro was sent off for violent conduct against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Red Devils managed to pull out a 2-1 win against Crystal Palace despite having a man sent off late on. Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring from the spot before Marcus Rashford continued his fine form by doubling his side’s lead.

Then after a scuffle between both sets of players, Casemiro was sent off for ‘violent conduct’ when he put two hands on Will Hughes’ throat in the 70th minute.

Jeffrey Schlupp scored for Palace minutes later but they were not able to capitalise on their man advantage and walked away with nothing to show for their efforts.

After the match, the Manchester United manager gave his thoughts on the sending off and although he agreed it was the right decision, he asked for referees to be more consistent.

“I see two teams fighting each other,” said Ten Hag.

“I see two teams where several players crossed the line and one player is picked out and gets sent off. For me that’s not right.

“When you freeze, Casemiro has crossed the line. But many more players are crossing the line.

“It’s about consistency. You don’t want to lose players when colleagues are hurting each other that bad like the player did last week against Christian Eriksen. The player from Crystal Palace started this.

“Casemiro is protecting our player and also protecting the player who wants to attack. He is holding him back – he is protecting him, he doesn’t want to hurt the player.”
