Who Is the Manchester United Star Getting Along With Most?
Speaking to United’s in-house media at Carrington training ground, the midfielder opened up on who he is closest with. The Brazilian international heaped praise on his current teammates and stated that he liked their work culture. He mentioned his former Madrid teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, alongside his Brazil teammates Fred and Anthony.
He said: “I had already played with [Raphael] Varane, Fred, Cristiano [Ronaldo], and Antony. Working with them day to day, you notice what quality players they are. Really dedicated, humble, and hard-working. I believe the club is very good in terms of player quality, not just with the players but also with the manager. We’re gradually evolving, and we’re on a dynamic run of wins, we’re doing well, that is all really important for us.”
He added that he is closest to Fred, Anthony, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Diogo Dalot. Casemiro said: “I’m closest to Cristiano, Diogo [Dalot], Fred, and Antony. I think it’s a relaxed dressing room, everyone works hard and has a lot of respect for the badge, the club, and their teammates. I think hard work is the most important thing. Of course, there’s time for work and then time for joking around, I think that’s what’s most important.”
