Ten Hag reveals what Casemiro brings to Manchester United

Erik ten Hag has been discussing Casemiro in a recent interview.


Manchester United faced off with Chelsea on Saturday in a Premier League clash.

Chelsea took a late lead in the tie, but Casemiro scored a header late on to recuse a point.

This was the second superb display from the Brazilian this week, with the midfielder also having a key role in the 2-0 win over Tottenham.

Casemiro took some time to settle in England following his switch from Real Madrid, but he now looks to be back to his best.

And following Chelsea, Ten Hag has outlined what the no.6 brings to Manchester United:

“That is why we brought him in,” Ten Hag explained. “We know he is capable to do that, he proved it in Spain, he proved it in the Champions League, so the highest level.

“So he could also do it in the Premier League. But it’s clear the Premier League is a different league, especially with the intensity, so he needed a short period to adapt to that.

“And now from game to game you see him growing, and how important it is for our game. He brings the composure, he brings the organisation and he even scores a goal and then you bring a lot to the team.”

Ten Hag continued: “That’s why I’m happy in this stage of the season with this point.

“When you are capable to fight back like we did. And we did it last week against Omonia to get the win, we did it today after, you are down, you give resilience, you show resilience and that is a really big theme for big teams to have that in your capabilities.

“And also, therefore, that is what Casemiro, among others, is bringing to this squad and to this team.”
