Ben Foster has slammed Manchester United star Casemiro and feels the Brazilian midfielder was responsible for an ‘absolute disgrace’ of a goal.

The Red Devils luckily escaped defeat at AFC Bournemouth last time out, leaving the south coast with a 2-2 draw after the Cherries were denied a late penalty.

Former United goalkeeper Foster was left furious at Casemiro for his failure to stop Bournemouth’s second goal, which was scored by Justin Kluivert.

‘The second goal, Casemiro, he’s a holding midfielder,’ Foster said on his YouTube channel.

‘He should be that engine, that rat in the midfield, the disruptor – somebody that breaks up all the attacks, gets in people’s faces.

‘The second goal, for me, is an absolute disgrace. It’s an absolute disgrace. He’s allowed to wander into that space and get his shot off.

‘Casemiro almost notices at the last second, meanders in, hangs a leg in there, and I’m thinking, do you know what? If I was a manager of a team and my holding midfielder did that, that action there and then, I’d say that’ll do. You, come off.’

Meanwhile, fellow pundit Micah Richards took aim at Diogo Dalot after United’s draw against Bournemouth.

Highlighting the team’s defensive issues, Richards said: ‘It was Man United’s right-hand side. I was a bit disillusioned with what was going on.

‘So Dalot goes inside – we know full-backs do that, we showed that [earlier] with Spurs – and the reason why he’s doing that is so Garnacho could be free.

‘But he goes into one position, then he goes into another position, but he doesn’t affect Bournemouth in any way.

‘Bruno Fernandes is telling him to go back in his position, the centre-halves are not going wide [to cover].

‘They win the first ball but lose the second ball, and now a young player – Wily Kambwala – has been exposed to Dominic Solanke. Yes, Solanke does ever so well, but where is the protection?’
