Former Aston Villa striker turned football pundit, Gabriel Agbonlahor is being mocked by social media users after he said that Manchester United star, Casemiro should be arrested over his violent conduct which earned him a red card during the match against Crystal Palace on Saturday, February 4.
Casemiro was shown the red card for choking Crystal Palace’s midfielder Will Hughes in a brawl which occurred during the match which ended 2-1 in favour of the Red Devils. The contact with Hughes’ neck was brief, but still enough for a red card. He will now miss United’s next three matches as a result of his actions.
Reacting to the incident, Agbonlahor said the police should be brought in. He told talkSPORTS;
“Casemiro thought he was Brock Lesnar back in the UFC. The way he was strangling Will Hughes, he should be arrested for that. Kids are watching that later on, on Match of the Day. Seeing Casemiro strangling an opponent.”
The football pundit’s statement triggered some reactions on social media. Here are some;
