February 7 News on the evening of February 4th, the 22nd round of the Premier League, Manchester United 2
-1 against Crystal Palace.
In the 66th minute of the game, when Anthony received a throw-in, Schroop rushed up and knocked him out of the field.
Anthony fell to the ground and spun around, then got up and pushed against Schroop, which eventually led to an escalation of the conflict, and Casemiro was sent off with a straight red.
Former referee Keith Hackett criticized Anthony for faking an injury and falling to the ground.
Hackett said: “Fake injuries like this is a tactical way of trying to reduce game time. It’s ridiculous, players go down just for fun. The problem is we always have players who are really badly injured, but
The referee will feel that he is still faking the injury and ignoring it. I think everyone needs to understand this, this behavior is detrimental to the game, and we need to do something.
Referees must be aware of this and while it is difficult to take action, they must work with relevant football organizations to prevent similar behavior from happening again. This behavior is silly.”
