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


Rio Ferdinand took aim at Casemiro after Manchester United conceded the opening goal in their drubbing at Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils were hammered at Selhurst Parkwith Michael Olise scoring early on in the capital. Casemiro had to fill in as a makeshift centre-half such are the injury problems at centre-half but went to ground as he attempted to make a tackle which set Olise on his way.

The Eagles’ star was able to waltz into the box before his scuffed shot nestled into the corner past Andre Onana. Ferdinand was straight on social media singling out the Casemiro – insisting he should’ve stayed on his feet rather than attempting to make the tackle. He posted: “Casemiro, stay on your feet.”

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.”
