Despite Manchester United beating Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, Casemiro still wanted answers from Bruno Fernandes for a late pass snub.

Manchester United beat Newcastle United 2-0 to win the Carabao Cup on Sunday, our first trophy in six years with Casemiro scoring the first goal for the Red Devils.

United could have had a third in the dying seconds when Fernandes ran through on goal and saw an effort saved by Loris Karius – with Casemiro eager to point out at the final whistle that he was better placed if a simple pass had been rolled in his direction.

The fact that Casemiro was still prepared to address the failure of Fernandes to pass the ball before lifting the Carabao Cup trophy is considered to be an indicator of the winning mentality that now exists at Old Trafford.

Former United captain Roy Keane, who always demanded the best from those around him, told Sky Sports of the post-match inquest between two classy midfielders: “Are they arguing there? Yep, maybe. I like that. I don’t know what they’re arguing about, but it shows they care.”
