‘Disrespectful!’ – Casemiro snaps as he delivers angry message to critics – including Jamie Carragher – who claim Man Utd midfielder should retire


WHAT HAPPENED?

The Brazil international has endured a tough time of late, with injury problems at Old Trafford forcing him to fill in at centre-half. As a natural holding midfielder, the 32-year-old has struggled to produce his best in a role that he is unaccustomed to gracing.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Liverpool legend Carragher has suggested that the former Real Madrid star is a spent force, with United being urged to move in a different direction ahead of a transfer window that is already seeing Casemiro linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

WHAT CASEMIRO SAID

Casemiro insists he has given no thought to a change of scenery, with the five-time Champions League winner telling Sky Sports when offering a response to his detractors: “You look towards the end of last season, the team was playing well with plenty of positive comments. So what happened? I was considered one of the best signings of the Premier League last season, and now I’m not worth anything anymore? The criticism is disrespectful. So, when it’s lacking respect, then it’s worrying, and I don’t have to respect that either. But there is always going to be criticism in football, especially playing for such a long time, people want to criticise. But from the moment when it lacks respect, that’s when you lose my respect.”
