”This Game Was Influenced By Referee” Furious Ten Hag Reacts On Manchester United Dropping Points

Pranjal is the co-owner of The 4th Official. While he completed law from Department of Law, University of Calcutta, his passion always remained in football and that is where he finally ended up at.

The biggest talking point from the Manchester United Vs Southampton game earlier today was the Casemiro red card.

The challenge was studs up and the foot was lifted a good way off the ground. However, many feel that given Casemiro won the ball, it should never have been a red. The new rules imposed at the start of the season though make it such that getting the ball irrelevant because of the angle and force in play.

However, it depends on your definition of whether the force in play deserved a red card? Especially was it worth a VAR overrule?

The Brazilian will now miss the next 4 domestic games for Manchester United – Fulham (home, FA Cup), Newcastle United (away, league), Brentford (home, league) and Everton (home, league). However, he will be available to play Manchester United’s next European encounter away to Real Betis.

Despite everything, Manchester United did not lose to Southampton. Marcus Rashford and the rest of the Man United players put up a fight to ensure that they gained at least a point.

One person who is definitely not convinced that it was a red card is Manchester United manager Ten Hag. He feels that the referees in the Premier League are definitely not treating Casemiro right.

When asked about the red card, the Manchester United manager had this to say on Sky Sports, “Casemiro played over 500 games in Europe and never once got a red card. Now he has two in the Premier League. His absence is not the issue. We will deal with that. This game was influenced by the referee.

“What I think is the inconsistency, players don’t know any more what the policy is. Big compliments to the team. They showed big character to play so long with 10. They were physically and mentally strong to get a point.”

Was the red card deserved for Casemiro?

The Manchester United fans won’t like it but it probably was a red card to be honest. Ever since the new rules were implemented, winning the ball first when it comes to studs up challenge is no longer relevant. So it was definitely a red card.

Ten Hag definitely knows more about football than us, but there’s no doubt he has a blind spot when it comes to Manchester United (lol!). Maybe the United manager should have followed Paul Scholes’ advice of resting the midfielder, then this situation would not have arisen today.
