‘He’s incredible’ – Tim Sherwood admits he was ‘so, so wrong’ about Manchester United star

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has admitted he was wrong about Manchester United star Casemiro.

The Brazilian midfielder lifted five Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles at Real Madrid before joining Manchester United last summer.

“When the deal was done, I thought Casemiro came to Manchester United to fill the till up,” Sherwood said on Premier League Productions.

“He’s done everything at Real Madrid, he can’t possibly have the hunger still. That’s what I thought at the time.

“I was so, so wrong. From the moment he scored that equaliser at Stamford Bridge [in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in October], I knew this boy was the real deal.

“He’s incredible. He puts out fires, any sort of danger he puts it out, but he can also play. To come in with that desire, at his age, you have to take your hat off to him.”
