Manchester United star Casemiro has picked out five teammates as he highlighted the quality of the current Red Devils squad.

The Brazilian midfielder joined United from Real Madrid in a deal worth a reported £70 million.

Since his arrival, United’s form has improved drastically with the 30-year-old at the heart of Erik ten Hag’s midfield.

Casemiro has also won over the hearts of the Old Trafford faithful thanks to his immense passion shown on the pitch.

The midfielder opened the scoring during last Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United as he got his hands on his first trophy with the club.

Speaking to United Review, he has picked out five of his teammates as he hailed the quality of the squad.

Casemiro said: “Every team has its own way of playing. It’s true here I have a greater role in attack.

“The style of play here is different, the build-up play, the manager, the league, the club are all different. Every club has their own way of playing, the most important thing is adapting quickly, that’s what I try to do.

“I’ll say it again, it’s impossible to do it on your own. There’s the quality of my teammates. There’s Licha [Lisandro Martinez] and [Raphael] Varane – high quality players. Christian [Eriksen] who I played alongside for a long time, another exceptional player. Fredinho [Fred], another excellent player, then there’s Bruno [Fernandes] who plays a bit further forward, a world-class player.”

United boss Ten Hag spoke about the impact of Casemiro back in January.

“He’s capable of that [scoring goals]. We see him as a part of it offensively and he enjoys it as well, when he can come [into] it. What I like is dynamic football with variations, with many positional switches so we have to make the opponent think so that we can take the benefit of it.

“Casemiro is magnificent. In front of the back line, always taking good positions, in and out of position. And he can deal with the ball, he can give the right pass. So, he can accelerate the game and if necessary, he can score.”
