Manchester United news: Casemiro has said that he is already happy at the Premier League outfit and with his new teammates.
Casemiro joined Man Utd in the summer transfer window as the Red Devils looked to bolster their midfield department. The Brazilian international left Real Madrid after several years of service to sign for Man Utd.
The 30-year-old has signed a four-year contract that runs until 2026 with Man Utd. There is also an option to extend it by another 12 months.
Casemiro has so far featured in four matches for Man Utd. He has made three appearances in the Premier League – all as a substitute. Casemiro also started for Man Utd in their Europa League 22/23 opener, against Real Sociedad. He featured right from the start until the end as Man Utd succumbed to a 1-0 defeat.
Manchester United news: Casemiro insists he is happy at his new club
Casemiro has insisted he is happy at Man Utd and that his new teammates are helping him adapt.
“I’ve been made to feel comfortable here from the first day. I’m really happy with my teammates, they’re always helping me. The coaching team always explains things clearly to me, I’m doing really well and am very happy,” Casemiro told Man Utd’s official website.
Casemiro also spoke about his compatriot Antony who has joined him at Man Utd. Antony signed for Man Utd from Ajax in the summer with the winger reuniting with Erik ten Hag at the Old Trafford outfit.
Casemiro described Antony as a top player and stressed that it is important to have players of his quality in the team.
“I think it’s really important to have such a quality player here [as Antony] with us,” Casemiro said. “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.”
Meanwhile, Man Utd have bounced back from a dreadful start to the Premier League 22/23 season. The Red Devils suffered defeats in their first two matches of the campaign, losing 2-1 to Brighton and 4-0 to Brentford.
They have since played four matches in the English top-flight and have secured 12 points from it, winning all matches. Man Utd’s first win of the season came against Liverpool, who they defeated 2-1.
Man Utd then secured 1-0 wins over both Southampton and Leicester City to improve their standing in the points table. They then defeated league leaders Arsenal to move up to fifth in the points table.
Man Utd resumes their Europa League campaign next by facing FC Sheriff in the group stage. Ten Hag’s side will be looking to earn all three points after defeat to Sociedad in the first match.
