Gabriel Jesus has urged Manchester United fans to Google Casemiro and discover for themselves that the midfielder is much more than a destructive force.
Brazil beat Switzerland 1-0 on Monday to advance to the last 16 of the World Cup. The Arsenal striker hails the 30-year-old as the best midfielder in the world.
Jesus said: “I don’t know if people in England watched Casemiro’s career before he came to the Premier Leaague, but I followed him for years at Real Madrid and know how many goals he scored in the Champions League”.
“If you go to Google and watch Casemiro’s games for Real, you will find what he is all about. He went there and scored a lot. I have played with some good midfielders and I put Fernandinho in there as well” .
“But I have spent a lot of time with Casemiro – and he is just an amazing player. Some people don’t understand that and don’t give him a lot of respect. But I do because I played with him for such a long time and know how good he is.”
Jesus said: “He will definitely be a good signing for United because of his quality and the way he works. It is just amazing. He is just so focused all the time”.
“He’s like ‘don’t lose, don’t give the ball away.’ It has been the same everywhere he’s been – that’s why he has been so successful. If you are a player who loves to work and wants to follow a winner, then he is a great influence.”
Jesus added: “Casemiro is a massive help to everyone because he is so experienced. He lived through so many things at Real Madrid and it has been like that his whole life”.
