Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has revealed that he was left “really surprised” by Marcus Rashford upon his arrival at Old Trafford – and has backed his teammate to reach the pinacle of the game.
The Brazilian midfielder completed a £50million move from Real Madrid to become a Red Devil in the summer and has made a profound impact. The 30-year-old has made 23 appearances for the club since and has very quickly established himself as a key player under Erik ten Hag.
Following his latest match-winning performance against Wolves on Saturday, Rashford was the subject of plenty of praise from Casemiro. The Brazilian stated that his teammate could soon be considered among the best players in the world, despite not having believed that before he joined United from Los Blancos.
Speaking to ESPN Brasil after the Red Devils’ victory at Molineux, he said: “I’m gonna be very honest with you; I was really surprised with the player Rashford is.
“In my opinion, especially knowing the player off the pitch, I can tell you that if he’s doing well, he can be one of the top five players in the world. He has an incredible way of hitting the ball, he’s got strength, he’s quick, is very clever playing.
