‘Casemiro Is The Real Defensive Brain Of Man United’ –Keown
Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has declared that Man United star, Casemiro is the real defensive brain of the team after his brilliant performance against Chelsea.
Recall that Chelsea took the lead after Jorginho’s second half penalty, but United got level through a terrific late Casemiro’s header.
In a chat with BBC Match of the Day, Keown stated that Casemiro is an absolute class who knows when to sniff out danger.
“Absolute class. I think he’s a player they’ve been missing for years. Conducts everything in that midfield. The real defensive brain of the team, and he can pass as well.
“He’s never ruffled. He sniffs out danger. He senses things really well, he anticipates. If you give it to him in a tricky situation he can find a pass. You see people doing that in front of you, it’s brilliant. His positioning is first class.
“He’s always in the right place for his team. When they need him most he comes to the fore, takes responsibility, That is a wonderful header, his first goal for United. Look what it means to him.”
