Antony reacts to Casemiro getting another red card
Manchester United forward Antony has reacted to his teammate and countryman Casemiro getting sent off during the Reds’ goalless draw with Southampton.
United suffered a huge blow in the first half of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Southampton. The Red Devils lost Casemiro to a red card for a studs-up tackle on Alcarez. The Brazilian was initially booked for the tackle but the yellow card was upgraded to a red after a VAR review.
The sending off is Casemiro’s second of the season which means he will be hit with a four-game ban.
Following the match, Antony took to Twitter to send a heartfelt message to his teammate. He posted:
“We will always be together brother. Raise your head, we have a lot ahead of us.”
Estaremos sempre juntos, irmão!! Levanta a cabeça, temos muito pela frente!! 👊🏽👊🏽 @Casemiro pic.twitter.com/QiSQmF50oP

This would be a big blow to Erik ten Hag and United as Casemiro has become a key player for the Red Devils in his first season at the club. The Brazilian will now miss United’s next four games including the FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham and Premier League matches against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton after the international break.
