Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has branded the club’s latest signing, Casemiro, as an absolute beast in football.
Manchester United confirmed last Friday that they had reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the signing of Casemiro.
The Premier League giants reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the Brazilian midfielder to move to Old Trafford in a deal worth £70 million.
“There’s no doubt in my mind what a player he is, an absolute beast of a player,’ Ferdinand said on Vibe With Five.
“He’s a real player’s player, one you can see with all the messages that have flown in since his decision to leave from his teammates, the respect and the appreciation of him as a player is undoubted.
“I just hope he’s not sucked up by the lack of confidence and negativity that surrounds this football club and this team at the moment, which has happened to many players who have come in and we have expected great things from and have not quite got to the level we have seen from them before.
“I hope he is not a victim of the environment he goes into, and that is the big issue for any players who are coming to a club lacking in confidence like Manchester United are at the moment.”
