Manchester United defensive midfielder Casemiro has revealed that he is enjoying every moment at the club like a 15-year-old. The Brazilian believes the Red Devils are moving on the right path under manager Erik Ten Hag and they are one of the title contenders.
Casemiro played an instrumental role in the team’s 3-1 win over Reading in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Saturday as he scored a brace.
Meanwhile, Manchester United is currently in fourth place in the standings in the Premier League with 39 points after 20 matches.
Casemiro said as quoted by the Independent, “I’m very comfortable at Manchester United, extremely happy to be here and enjoying every moment like a 15-year-old kid!”
“Manchester United is a big club… in my opinion, if we look at the titles, it’s the biggest in England. In our lives we have to have goals and challenges. It was a challenge for me to keep growing and developing in my career.”
The veteran also shed light on the team’s performances and future plans under the tutelage of Erik Ten Hag.
“We’re on a good path. This is the way to win titles, but we need to keep growing. We know we’re progressing within a plan, step by step we’re building a well-structured team and this is important. To win titles in the future, you have to build a solid foundation.”
On the other hand, Erik Ten Hag feels the team’s forward Antony still needs to improve a lot. The Brazilian had joined the club from Ajax for £86 million.
“We have to challenge him and if you challenge him he can adapt and adjust his game. He has to be more variable, more dynamic. He needs his teammates around him, but also how to use his teammates. He has to work on it. I think there is still room for improvement.”
Manchester United will next face Nottm Forest in the second leg of the semifinal in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
