Rio Ferdinand singles out Man Utd star and fumes over Crystal Palace controversy

After Manchester United gave up the first goal in their crushing defeat at Crystal Palace, Rio Ferdinand slammed Casemiro.

Michael Olise scored the first goal of the game in the capital, sending the Red Devils reeling at Selhurst Park. Due to injuries at center half, Casemiro had to step in as a temporary center half. However, he was tackled and sent to the ground, setting Olise up for a goal.

The star player for the Eagles managed to waltz into the box, and then his scuffed shot found a way past Andre Onana and into the corner. On social media, Ferdinand immediately called out Casemiro, stating that he ought to have stayed upright instead of trying to make the tackle. “Casemiro, stay on your feet,” he posted.

Jamie Carragher said at half-time on Sky Sports: “Listen, he’s playing out of position tonight be this has nothing to do with playing out of position. That could be in a holding midfield role. I mean that is embarrassing and they need to bring him off. He needs to come off the pitch. Honestly. Nothing can be worse than Casemiro playing centre-back in the second half for Manchester United. Get Wan-Bisakka in the middle and get someone on.”
