Erik ten Hag: This game was influenced by the referee

Manchester United failed to win against Southampton. Although many expected the Red Devils to have an easy time at Old Trafford, Casemiro's red card spoiled everything. Erik ten Hag is satisfied with the performance of his team, which fought despite the fact that they played with 10 players.

"Big compliments to the team. They showed big character to play so long with 10. They were physically and mentally strong to get a point."- Erik ten Hag said, as quoted by eurosport.com The Dutchman believes that his team deserved at least one spot-kick.

There were two interesting situations in which the referee could actually point to a penalty kick. "Definitely. There's no doubt. I don't know why VAR didn't interrupt."

Erik ten Hag on the referees

Erik ten Hag believes that the referees were the main culprits.

Casemiro is a player who never received a red card until he arrived at Manchester United. It is interesting that the Red Devils have been damaged many times this season. "Casemiro played over 500 games in Europe and never once got a red card.

Now he has two in the Premier League,” he said.
"His absence is not the issue. We will deal with that. This game was influenced by the referee." Manchester United will have tough challenges in the rest of the season, but it seems that they are close to securing the top 4 this season.

Every Manchester United fan would accept such an option before the start of the season. In addition, United is still in the running for the FA Cup trophy, as well as the Europa League trophy. They have a good chance to win at least one more, but they know it will be a difficult task.

Erik ten Hag has created an excellent team that can certainly do a lot. The summer will be a good chance to further strengthen Manchester United and to try to increase their ambitions.
