Casemiro pretended to step on Christian Eriksen's injured foot during celebrations

There's little that Casemiro can do that Manchester United fans won't love right now, unless he'd actually followed through and stepped on Christian Eriksen's injured foot.

Ever since he arrived at Untied in the summer, Casemiro has been an instant hit at the club, making a huge difference to the team with insane quality.

The fact he also cares has really shone through too, when many questioned if he was just arriving at the Premier League to pick up a huge pay packet.

On Sunday, he had a huge impact on the Carabao Cup final, winning the Player of the Match award and scoring the opening goal of the game.

Afterwards he showed some elite mentality by telling off Bruno Fernandes for not passing at the end of the game, as celebration had already begun.

However, he also showed his fun side, taking the piss out of Eriksen by pretending to stand on his fellow midfielder's injured foot whilst they took a picture, as you can see in the video below.

Eriksen was injured in January, by a disgusting challenge from Andy Carroll during an FA Cup tie against Reading, that the forward wasn't punished for.

It forced Erik ten Hag into signing a midfielder on deadline day, with Marcel Sabitzer coming in on loan from Bayern Munich till the end of the season.

The Austrian made a big impact on the final as well, after Casemiro had started alongside fellow Brazilian Fred in the centre of midfield.

When Ten Hag brought Sabitzer on Newcastle were starting to really get on top of the battle at the centre of the pitch, but the change swung momentum back in United's favour.

Along with the decision to bring Aaron Wan-Bissaka on at half time, it was proof just how good the Dutchman's management of his side has been.

He has worked out every detail of how he wants his team to work, right down to the fact they didn't wear suits ahead of the final.

He might be all about the boring details, but the former Ajax man still found time to have fun following the final whistle, joining Lisandro Martinez and Antony for a celebratory dance.

Whilst most United fans were loving it, the dance led Roy Keane to call for the 53-year-old to resign as the manager, even though he got the Irishman tickets to the final.
