Man United star accused of faking injury when he was ‘fit to play’

A Manchester United star has been accused of faking injury by a teammate’s brother.

Sofyan Amrabat’s sibling, Nordin, has made astonishing claims regarding Casemiro‘s situation with the FA Cup final.

United beat rivals City 2-1 at Wembley Stadium, with Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo on target in the triumph.

However, there was mass confusion before the game when it came to United’s teamsheet.

Casemiro was initially named on the bench for the final and featured on the official teamsheets handed out to media.

However, it was then communicated that he was not in the squad at all after suffering from a muscle problem as he warmed up in the dressing room.

Erik ten Hag then told media that the Brazilian experienced tightness in his hamstring and said he did not want to play.

But a shock alternative explanation has been given by former Watford winger Amrabat.

According to the 37-year-old, Casemiro was not injured to play and decided to watch from the stands when he learned he was a sub.

Speaking to Z Select, Amrabat said: “Casemiro was not injured in the FA Cup Final. He found out that he wouldn’t start, so he thought to himself, okay I will sit in the stands then. He was fit to play.”

The comments come weeks after Wayne Rooney claimed United players were avoiding playing through the pain.

Casemiro collected his medal and lifted the trophy in his full kit but was not seen in the post-match celebrations, instead going on holiday with his family.

After a disappointing second season with United, Casemiro has been heavily linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

And remarkably, reports claim that United could make a profit on the £70 million they forked out in 2022.

It’s stated that Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr are prepared to pay a whopping £85 million to bring him to Riyadh.
