Casemiro hails Bruno Fernandes 

But in a recent interview, Casemiro appeared to suggest that Bruno Fernandes is easily the best player at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international disclosed that he often watched the Portuguese talisman before moving to the Theatre of Dreams.

"Before coming to Manchester United, I’d turn on the TV and watch their games… and he was the best player," Casemiro said of Fernandes via Metro UK.
"He’s one of the guys that helps up front and midfield, he is part of that transition. He’s our best player there," he added.

Fernandes will be hoping to live up to Casemiro's praises when Man United takes on Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday at Wembley.

The cup final will grant both teams a chance to collect their first trophy of the 2022/23 season.

The important match comes at a time the Red Devils are desperate to end their title drought, with the club yet to lift a major trophy since 2017 when they won the Europa League under Jose Mourinho. 

Casemiro's reaction shocks fans

Sports Brief has also reported that Man United midfielder, Casemiro shocked fans recently by avoiding a scrap between his teammates and Barcelona players.

The Brazilian is known for never backing away from confrontation in football matches and is usually on hand to defend his teammates if the need arises.

Not on Thursday though, as the 31-year-old played it safe with his on-pitch behaviour against the Catalan giants in the second leg of the Europa League playoffs.
