Surrendered to Casemiro

When Carlos Henrique Casemiro (30 years old) arrived at Manchester United, one of the few pieces of advice he was given was to reduce the dose of caffeine. Used to drinking more than 10 coffees a day, the legendary Brazilian midfielder was capable of having an espresso just before going to sleep. It is not surprising then that, as soon as he landed in the Premier League, his desire to play was manifest, but Erik ten Hag preferred to wait seven weeks. That’s why he gave him his first start at Goodison Park.

Due for considerable refurbishment, the Everton fiefdom coincidentally became the perfect setting to see Casemiro swathed in the old scent of English football. The stands imprison the field like in few others, the back and forth game has not gone out of style and the strong emotions continue to infect a fan known as ‘the toffees’ (the candies), although their rivals usually leave a taste bitter. A drink that Casemiro, however, did not resist.

The Brazilian had been waiting for so many years to play this kind of match, so typical of the Premier, that the result could not have been better and Casemiro was named as the best player of the match (MVP). It’s more, left a string of technical and tactical resources that reminded us of his best times at Real Madridalthough one stood out above the rest.

It was an instant, long enough to see Cristiano Ronaldo launch a free kick, and Casemiro executed it instinctively. The midfielder stole the ball from the feet of Iwobi, panfilo, served United’s ‘7’ the 700th goal of his career, and incidentally, tied the victory in Merseysidein a match that ended 1-2 in favor of Ten Hag’s team, for whom it will be very difficult to leave the Brazilian international on the bench again.

Many lights and some shadow

During the match, Casemiro recovered possession up to nine times, and together with Christian Eriksen (another who is at an exceptional level), he was the one who achieved it the most times. That let United breathe, who started losing to an early goal precisely from Iwobi, and who had to row against the current throughout the first half, but sometimes needed to rest, and recoveries were vital to United’s plan.

That’s the way it is, It is not strange that the English press, and especially the Mancunian press, is devoted to Casemirowho is already considered one of the leaders of the dressing room (“Casemiro showed what he has brought to Manchester United in two seconds against Everton”, highlighted the Manchester Evening News). Of course, the Brazilian still has homework to do: he lost the ball 17 times, being the Red Devils player who risked possession the most at Goodison Park…
