Manchester United forward Antony has reacted to his teammate and countryman Casemiro getting sent off during the Reds’ goalless draw with Southampton.
United suffered a huge blow in the first half of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Southampton. The Red Devils lost Casemiro to a red card for a studs-up tackle on Alcaraz. The Brazilian was initially booked for the tackle but the yellow card was upgraded to a red after a VAR review.
The sending off is Casemiro’s second of the season which means he will be hit with a four-game ban.
Following the match, Antony took to Twitter to send a heartfelt message to his teammate. He posted:
“We will always be together brother. Raise your head, we have a lot ahead of us.”
This would be a big blow to Erik ten Hag and United as Casemiro has become a key player for the Red Devils in his first season at the club. The Brazilian will now miss United’s next four games including the FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham and Premier League matches against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton after the international break.
