‘Casemiro has made a huge difference for Manchester United following his summer arrival from Real Madrid’
Manchester United midfielder, Christian Eriksen, has said that it was a delight to play alongside Casemiro for the club this season.
The midfield duo both arrived at Old Trafford in the summer transfer window and have already established themselves as key players under Erik ten Hag.
Casemiro was named Man of the Match after his latest stellar showing for United in the victory over Nottingham Forest this week, with a flawless midfield display.
United have been a much better side since they integrated the Brazilian into their side following his summer move from Real Madrid, with Eriksen one of those to prosper most from his arrival.

The Danish playmaker has now been given the freedom to push forward whenever he sees fit, safe in the knowledge that he has one of the best defensive midfielders in football playing behind him.
United’s hopes of success this season could well rely on keeping Casemiro fit, and Erisken is delighted to play alongside him on a weekly basis.
“I think people who watch football and play football, they know he can pass,” Eriksen told reporters when asked if he was surprised by Casemiro’s impact. “Obviously, he has come here and really taken the league in his own way.
“We are happy with that. It has been, it is nice playing next to him. He gets you that extra space; if you lose the ball, he will get it back, and he is very good on the ball as well.”
