Speaking on BT Sport, Paul Scholes said: “It’s not a surprise now that Casemiro is left out because of Manchester United’s results [in the Premier League].
“Casemiro, we know the quality he’s got and he’ll have to work his way into that team. He did okay [against Sheriff Tiraspol]. He’s clever, he’s experienced.
“Eventually he will work his way into this team, but he’s going to have to wait a little bit. He surprised me a little bit with his forward passing, his range of passing.
“I thought he was more of a winner, getting the ball back in midfield. He has more to his game. With the quality he’s got, work his way into the team.”
Casemiro, who joined Man United on a £70 million transfer from Real Madrid in the summer window, is yet to establish himself as a key player at Old Trafford.
With Scott McTominay emerging as one of Erik ten Hag’s favorite players at the club, the Brazilian has his work cut out for him as he looks to impress the boss.
