Gabby Agbonlahor believes that Casemiro should be arrested after he put two hands around a Crystal Palace player’s throat on Saturday.
Manchester United walked away 2-1 winners from their clash with Crystal Palace but almost slipped up when Casemiro received a red card late on for ‘violent conduct’ towards Will Hughes.
There was a scuffle between the two sides and in the frantic melee, Casemiro decided to grab Hughes by the throat. VAR took a look at the incident and the referee had no choice but to send the Brazilian off.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Aston Villa striker believes that Casemiro should be disciplined by his club.
“Casemiro thought he was Brock Lesnar back in the UFC, the way he was strangling Will Hughes and he should be arrested for that.” he said.
“You know, there are kids watching that game later on Match of the Day or watching it somewhere and seeing Casemiro strangling an opponent.
“This isn’t ice hockey in America where they have a scarp during the game, this is football and we don’t want to see that. Casemiro needs to be disciplined by Manchester United.”
