‘He learned his lesson!’: Man United fans are quick to point out Casemiro walking away while his team-mates scuffle with Barcelona players – with the Brazilian on thin ice after two suspensions this season
Casemiro has sent Man United fans into hysterics with his reaction to an altercation during the Red Devils’ game against Barcelona.
Chaos reigned in the second half when United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Frankie de Jong, with stars such as Bruno Fernandes and Sergio Busquets involved.
Casemiro, though a direct rival of Barca during his 10 years at Real Madrid, looked on from the side of the scuffle before walking away with his head down.
He was sent off just three weeks ago for grabbing Will Hughes against Crystal Palace, but this time avoided any risk of punishment.
Fans cracked up on Twitter, with many insisting he’s learned his lesson after the events at Old Trafford earlier this month.

‘If minding your own business was a person’, added another. ‘Casemiro has learned his lesson the hard way. He couldn’t risk being Randy Orton. He doesn’t even look. This is Barca man. His hands are itching but SELF-CONTROL keyed him down.’
