Casemiro already feeling at home

Tuesday 13 September 2022 17:00

Casemiro has quickly adapted to life at Manchester United, following his move from Real Madrid during the transfer window.

The Brazilian was one of Erik ten Hag's summer signings and, after making his debut in the win at Southampton in late August, his first start came in last Thursday's Europa League tie with Real Sociedad at Old Trafford.

Although it is still early days in terms of his career in the red shirt, the much-decorated midfielder has wasted little time in integrating with the staff and his new team-mates and is likely to be involved when the Reds meet Sheriff Tiraspol in our final fixture before the international break.

When we asked how he is finding life in England, Casemiro replied: "It's great, really good, a really friendly club where I feel comfortable.

"I've been made to feel comfortable here from the first day. I'm really happy with my team-mates, they're always helping me.

"The coaching team always explaining things clearly to me, I'm doing really well and am very happy."

We've seen pictures of Antony out and about in Manchester, and Casemiro has welcomed his fellow countryman and is just as keen to explore the city, when opportunities arise.

"I think it's really important to have such a quality player here [as Antony] with us," he explained. "I knew him from the national team already.

"He'd played with us in Brazil, it's always important to have players of Antony's level. Not just him, we have a lot of top-quality players.

"On the city, people tell me a lot about it, like where the best restaurants are. I'm someone who likes to stay at home and relax with my family, I'm doing really well and am very happy to be here."
