Casemiro’s red card against Southampton continues to be a huge controversy among fans online.
Even fans of other clubs believe Case didn’t deserve the red card, which goes to show exactly how biased the referees were.
Prior to joining Manchester United, the Brazilian once spoke about his tackling style. “The referee, the fans, I think the key to all of this is that they also see there is no malice,” explained Casemiro back in February 2022.
“I always try to get the ball, I always go strong because that is who I am. I like the intensity that I play with, but there is no malice, I have never gone with studs to hurt a player.
“If someone is going to hurt a player, I get angry because that is not football. In football you can foul, fouls are part of the game. But never with malice. And I think it comes from my values which my mother taught me. And I am never going to hurt a player.

“I am never going to insult a player, I am never going to do anything wrong. Of course, being on the field you can stir up a player, that is normal and it will always happen because each one defends their badge.
“But my values that my mother taught me is never to hurt anyone. I think I am going to keep fouling and receiving cards because that is football, but I believe my values that my mother taught me is never to hurt anyone.”
Meanwhile, clips of this video are doing the rounds on social media and here’s how fans have reacted –
