Rio Ferdinand Says Whether Casemiro Deserves a Red Card Against Southampton For His Bad Tackle

Speaking on his official YouTube podcast, Rio Ferdinand said: “The red card was a problem. For any team which goes down to 10 men, it becomes a problem.

“Casemiro’s [fault] and it was a red card — no problem. If it was 11 men and we drew, then I would be saying this was quite a bad week.

“Had we gone down to 10 men at home to Southampton previously — regardless of where they are in the league — we lose that game from that position.”
