Manager Eric ten Haag has said he will not appeal against Manchester United’s three-match ban for sending off Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace.

Brazilian midfielder Casemiro was sent off by referee Andre Marriner on 70 minutes in a match against Palace.

Players from both teams came together on the sideline after Jeffrey Schluff fouled Anthony. After a VAR check on the side of the pitch, Mariner decided that Casemiro had acted violently towards Palace midfielder Will Hughes.

So after Casemiro was sent off, Schluff scored a consolation goal, but United finished the game victorious. Casemiro will sit out this week’s Premier League home and away games against Leeds United and away to Leicester City on Sunday, 19 February.

This suspension does not affect his participation in the first leg of the Europa League play-offs in Barcelona next Thursday (February 16).

In a pre-match press conference on Tuesday ahead of a home game against Leeds United at Old Trafford, manager Ten Haag was asked if the club had considered overturning the suspension.

“I was considering it.”

Director Ten Haag admitted before explaining why the appeal had not been started.

“I don’t think it was the right decision to send Casemiro out, but I didn’t think there was any chance of salvation through an appeal process.”

Without Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek injured, it could be a game for Marcel Savitzer to play his first game for United.

The Austrian Sabitzer came on as a substitute for the last 20 minutes of the match against Palace. His game intelligence and calm ball control skills were recognized by Ten Haag.

Manchester United’s Anthony Martial is still out with injury. Anthony cannot play in this game.

ten Haag expressed his belief in the strength of the team, saying that the missing players will not have much impact on the upcoming game.

“I’m a director. You should always play against available players. We have a squad. There are many good players. They won’t always start, but other players will get a chance.”

“After the game, you can’t say there’s no Casemiro and you can’t say there’s no Martial. We have to win.”

“They are all players who belong to Manchester United. Whoever comes into the game, we have to win.”
