Casemiro: I already feel comfortable at Man United

Casemiro has suggested that he has already adapted to life at Manchester United.

After nine years contracted to Real Madrid, the midfielder made the decision last month to take on a new challenge at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international was departing a club in Los Blancos who are European champions for a team who are only competing in the Europa League during 2022-23.

Despite the change of scenery and contrasting moods at the respective clubs, Casemiro has indicated that he is enjoying life in the North-West of England.

As quoted by the club’s official website, the 30-year-old said: “It’s great, really good, a really friendly club where I feel comfortable.

“I’ve been made to feel comfortable here from the first day. I’m really happy with my teammates, they’re always helping me.

“The coaching team always explaining things clearly to me, I’m doing really well and am very happy.”

When quizzed on his experiences of Manchester itself, Casemiro added: “On the city, people tell me a lot about it, like where the best restaurants are.

“I’m someone who likes to stay at home and relax with my family, I’m doing really well and am very happy to be here.”

With his transfer occurring after the 4-0 defeat at Brentford and before the showdown with rivals Liverpool, Casemiro had been expected to become an automatic starter in Erik ten Hag’s lineup.

However, United have since posted four successive wins in the Premier League, instead resulting in three appearances totalling 51 minutes from the substitutes’ bench.

Casemiro was presented with 90 minutes during the Europa League fixture with Real Sociedad last week, the Red Devils losing 1-0 courtesy of a controversial penalty.

A second outing in succession was expected to come on yesterday with United looking to revive their European campaign against Sheriff Tiraspol. – SportsMole
