The Saturday altercation between the players of Manchester United and Crystal Palace has been further illuminated by a fresh camera perspective.
Even though Erik ten Hag’s squad appeared to be cruising to three points with a two-goal advantage as the game entered the second half, chaos would break out after a collision on the side of the pitch.
Casemiro is seen approaching the Ghanaian international and pushing him in new video that was captured by a fan in the Old Trafford stands and posted on Twitter. This causes players from both teams to become involved in the altercation.
The former Real Madrid player is then seen snatching Will Hughes by the throat as their teammates start to fight.
After consulting VAR, referee Andre Marriner dismissed Casemiro, who now faces a three-match suspension.
The United boss declared, “I see two sides fighting each other.” I noticed two teams where multiple players crossed the line before one of them was singled out and dismissed. That’s not right in my opinion.
“Much more players should have been dismissed for this incident when Casemiro is dismissed,” said the coach. You must maintain consistency.
When asked if Ayew ought to have been among them, Ten Hag responded, “Absolutely. He performed worse than Casemiro did. You froze the shot, Casemiro, and he crossed the line. Absolutely, yes. With VAR, you must maintain consistency.
