When asked about how he feels working with Erik ten Hag at Man United, Casemiro said: “I believe that, after being in football for quite a while, despite the fact I am only 30, his obsession for winning is what surprised me the most.
“I think he’s got many strengths. We all know it’s a process and we are growing together. But we all see that he wants to win.
“His obsession for teaching us and leaving everything perfect to the millimetre, that is key. His obsession for winning is something that only a few managers have. It’s something I have only seen in very few managers.”
The fact that Casemiro – who has worked under managers like Zinedine Zidane and Carlo Ancelotti – rates Ten Hag so strongly is only proof of how the impressive job the gaffer is doing.
The Brazilian midfielder will hope to continue his superb run of form and further consolidate his role as a regular starter for Ten Hag.
