Southampton manager Ruben Selles gives verdict on Casemiro red card

Erik ten Hag was rightly critical of the Premier League officials after Casemiro was sent on his marching orders after the half hour mark for a tackle on Carlos Alvaraz.

Southampton manager Ruben Selles was diplomatic after the match, though, and suggested it was a waste of time talking about the officials when asked about Casemiro’s red card for United on Sunday.

Maybe from his perspective, being a bottom of the table side getting a point at Old Trafford… but it’s a different story for us. He seems completely unaware of that.

VAR intervened and it was a big turning point in the match — giving Southampton a lucky lifeline.

Speaking to Hampshire Live after the match, Selles said: “I got a look at it but I don’t want to speak about the referee’s performance.

“I think it’s a waste of time. The referee makes a decision, sometimes it goes for you and sometimes it doesn’t, that’s it.”

  1. I watch 6-8 premier league matches every week and Champions league, etc. That was the most horrible referee job I’ve ever seen. CLEARLY a handball on SH (most obvious HB i’ve seen in years). AFTER watching the VAR of Cassimiros tackle, I actually expectected the ref to withdraw the yellow card!! He clearly hit the ball first and his foot moved up the ball and struck the other player….INTENT?? Even worse, a SH player made a similar tackle close to our goal and ref called nothing. Who investigates ref complaints? Dont let this die
