Erik Ten Hag Explains Why He Subbed Off Casemiro During Man United's Hard Fought Win Over Brentford
- Casemiro was unable to last the entire 90 minutes of Manchester United's EP clash against Brentford
- The Brazilian was subbed off in the second half of the tie and replaced by Christian Eriksen
- Scott McTominay was United's match hero as he came off the bench to inspire his side to victory
Erik ten Hag has opened up on his decision to substitute Casemiro during Manchester United's Premier League clash against Brentford.
United hosted the Bees in an epic clash staged at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the aim of bouncing back to winning ways after a string of poor performances across competitions.
According to Metro UK, the Red Devils looked set to be staring at another embarrassing defeat following Mathias Jensen's opener for Brentford.
However, Scott McTominay came off the bench to rescue the hosts with two injury-time goals.
The midfielder appeared to have rescued a point for United in the 93rd minute before he added a second one moments later to earn his side a crucial win.
Ten Hag explains Casemiro's substitution
Away from McTominay's heroics, Casemiro's substitution in the second half of the tie was the other biggest talking point.
The Brazilian midfielder was replaced by Christian Eriksen, with Ten Hag disclosing that he wanted 'more football' through the introduction of the Dane.
"I wanted more football. One who brings passing, distribution, link-up play. So I thought bring Christian Eriksen for Case," Ten Hag said via Manchester Evening News.
"In football, it's eaten or you get eaten. Too many times, in the first half of the season, we got eaten by opponents who were more hungry and that can't be. It has to go away," he continued.

The Spaniard is yet to find a new club after leaving Manchester United upon expiry of his contract at the end of last season.
He was replaced by Andre Onana, whose start at Old Trafford has been a miserable one.
