Man United fans want Casemiro to be named captain after his agent reveals what he's been doing whilst suspended

Man United fans are loving Casemiro's attitude whilst he's suspended from domestic football.

Manchester United fans want Casemiro to be made club captain after the player's agent has revealed what he has been doing whilst suspended.

Casemiro has starred for Man United this season following his move from Real Madrid last summer.

He's performed wonders in the middle of the park and has steered his side to Carabao Cup glory as they fight on three fronts.

But, other than the Europa League where he's eligible, the 31-year-old has been out of action after picking up a four-match domestic ban following his red card against Southampton.

According to his agent Oscar Ribot, it's been a struggle as the Brazilian international lives and breathes football.

Ribot also revealed that his client has watched 'everything' during his suspension and is even 'calculating the points needed' to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League table.

"Taking football away from Case is like taking food from his table, it’s like he can’t live, can’t breathe. He wakes up thinking about football and goes to bed thinking about football," he told The Guardian.

"He watches hundreds of games: any team, any league. I’ve seen him watch Chinese games because there is always some detail. He says he won’t be a coach, but he will. He’s already one in a footballer’s body."

Casemiro's agent added: "This month, he’s watched everything [whilst he's been suspended], calculating the points needed and the days left.

"Case has signed for four years plus one. He’s come to win titles; this month has been hard, but there’s nothing else on his mind."
