Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has warned the rest of the Premier League that Reds midfielder Casemiro is only going to get better.

After slowly being integrated into life in English football, following his £60m move from Real Madrid, the 30-year-old has become a vital part of Erik ten Hag’s side.

The five-time Champions League winner has become a key part of United’s side and his importance to the Brazil team has already been seen in Qatar.

United’s number 18 is certainly playing like he’s the “best midfielder in the world” and that’s something that his international teammate Neymar certainly endorses.

With Cristiano Ronaldo no longer a Manchester United player, Casemiro’s importance and influence in the Red Devils dressing room is only likely going to increase.

The midfield enforcer is a serial winner and his thirst for trophies will hopefully rub off on his teammates.

Robson, who was a midfield marvel himself for the twenty-time league champions, believes that the Brazil international, who is yet to lose a World Cup game, will only get better when he returns from Qatar.

Speaking in an interview with Webby & O’Neill, Robson compared Casemiro’s ability to read the game and to be one step ahead of the opposition to that of our legendary former number 18 Paul Scholes.

Robson said: “Casemiro has done terrific. He knows the game – he knows where to be on the pitch, he gets into great positions to intercept and get tackles in, but he’s a really good passer of the ball, and he sees the picture.

“He’s a bit like Scholesy as far as seeing the picture before the ball even comes to you. He’s great at playing the ball forward.

“I think he’ll only get better when they come back from the World Cup.”

The former Los Blancos star will be hoping to return to the Theatre of Dreams as a World Cup winner before targeting winning a first trophy with the Busby Babes.
