Danny Murphy, a former player for Liverpool, has come to the defense of Manchester United midfielder Casemiro, calling him “a super footballer.”
After being acquired for a hefty sum from Real Madrid, Casemiro wasted no time making an impression for Man United last season.
The Brazilian international quickly established himself as an integral element of Erik ten Hag’s redevelopment plan for Manchester United.
However, former Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher has been among those critical of Casemiro’s performance for Man United in their recent loss to Tottenham Hotspur.
Carragher has doubts about the Red Devils’ acquisition of Casemiro and does not think the midfielder will prove to be a wise investment in the long run.
Murphy, however, is certain that Casemiro will remain a vital cog for Man United for the next two seasons.
Murphy was described by Metro UK as saying, “He is a holding midfielder; if he was playing in a midfield that had a better defensive, tactical set-up, he would not look as isolated as he has done in the first two games.”
He is widely regarded as one of the top central midfielders of the recent decade. You shouldn’t worry about him failing to regain his form from the previous year, but he might use a few extra sets of strong legs in his corner.
And I think we will see, in particular because Mount has been injured for the past couple of games, that McTominay will probably come in and play beside him to give him some legs and help.
I don’t think he’ll be a problem for at least the next year or two because he’s a terrific player.
