Gary Neville names the Arsenal star who ‘can’t run’ as he defends Man Utd’s Casemiro

Gary Neville has named the Arsenal star who ‘can’t run’ as he jumped to the defence of Casemiro.

Casemiro has come under this season following his underwhelming performances for Manchester United.

He was subject to fierce criticism after his horror show in his side’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Crystal Palace.

After the match, Jamie Carragher ripped into the veteran midfielder in a brutal assessment.

But Neville has launched a staunch defence of the 32-year-old Man United player and in doing so, referenced Arsenal‘s Jorginho.

The former Red Devils captain insists the Brazilian will remain at Old Trafford beyond this season and claimed he can still play in midfield even if he can’t run, highlighting Jorginho’s role at Arsenal.

“Casemiro is going to be here next season, unless they can get somebody from Saudi Arabia to pay huge money,” said Neville on Stick to Football, brought to you by Sky Bet.

“He’s going to be at Manchester United, so they’ve got to work with him, haven’t they?

“Jorginho is a good example. Jorginho can’t run – he’s better on the ball, but he can’t run, and he was finished at Chelsea.”

Neville added: “He goes to Arsenal, and he looks a beautiful player in that Arsenal midfield with Declan Rice on one side and [Martin] Odegaard on the other, with that centre back partnership behind him.

“So, you can play in that position and not run.”

Casemiro has a potential three years left at Man United once the 2023/24 season comes to an end.

He shone in his debut campaign at the club but has largely failed to impress this term.
