Manchester United confirm stance on Casemiro red card ahead of Leeds clash

The Brazilian received his marching orders in Saturday’s win over Crystal Palace for putting his hands around Will Hughes’ neck during a scrum between the two teams at Old Trafford.

While ten Hag criticized the decision to fire his player, the Dutchman confirmed that United would not risk appealing.

If the FA viewed the appeal as “frivolous”, they could extend the ban from three games to four.

“We have considered it, yes, but I don’t think we have a chance in legal proceedings,” the United boss said on Tuesday.

In that case, Casemiro would be ruled out of the Carabao Cup final encounter with Newcastle at Wembley later this month.

With Chrisitan Eriksen out, the club will take no chances on the long-term availability of another key player.

Casemiro will miss United’s double-header against Leeds this week as well as visiting Leicester before the Wembley final.

Scott McTominay was also ruled out of Wednesday’s game due to injury, leaving Marcel Sabitzer and Fred as the only senior options.
