Brazil star Gabriel Jesus urges fans to Google Casemiro’s name

Brazil star Gabriel Jesus has told fans to Google midfielder Casemiro’s name in order to discover that the Manchester United man is so much more than a defensive option.

Throughout his career, many fans have regarded Casemiro as one of the best defensive midfielders in world football due to his no-nonsense style of play.

Brazil manager Tite and star man Neymar have both hailed Casemiro as the best midfielder in football. Now, Jesus has urged fans to search the former Real Madrid player’s name on Google and see that he can do everything.

Jesus said, per The Mirror: “I don’t know if people in England watched Casemiro’s career before he came to the Premier League, but I followed him for years at Real Madrid and know how many goals he scored in the Champions League.

“If you go to Google and watch Casemiro’s games for Real, you will find what he is all about. He went there and scored a lot. I have played with some good midfielders and I put Fernandinho in there as well.

“But I have spent a lot of time with Casemiro - and he is just an amazing player. Some people don’t understand that and don’t give him a lot of respect. But I do because I played with him for such a long time and know how good he is.”

Although it took Casemiro some time to nail down a place in Erik ten Hag’s starting eleven since his move to United in the summer, Jesus has backed the 30-year-old to be a real success at Old Trafford.

“He will definitely be a good signing for United because of his quality and the way he works. It is just amazing. He is just so focused all the time,” Jesus added.

“He’s like ‘don’t lose, don’t give the ball away.’ It has been the same everywhere he’s been – that’s why he has been so successful. If you are a player who loves to work and wants to follow a winner, then he is a great influence.”

On Monday, Casemiro showed his offensive abilities as he scored a brilliant goal to secure a 1-0 win for Brazil against Switzerland.

The victory also confirmed Brazil’s place in the last 16 with a game to spare.
