Danny Murphy has launched a staunch defence of under-fire Manchester United star Casemiro.
Casemiro has been heavily criticised for his performances in Manchester United’s first two Premier League games this season.
“It’s all about the dynamic of a team and the way someone fits in and the way people perceive you to be,” Murphy said as quoted by Metro.
“He’s a holding midfielder, if he was playing in a midfield that had a better defensive, tactical set-up, he wouldn’t look as isolated as he has done in the first two games.
“He’s been one of the best holding midfield players of the last decade. I think he will get back to last season’s form, I wouldn’t worry about that, but I think he needs some legs around him to help him.
“And I think we will see especially as there’s been an injury now to [Mason] Mount for the couple of games, I think you’ll see [Scott] McTominay probably come in and play alongside him to give him some legs and give him some help.
“But I don’t worry about him for the next year or two – he’s a super player.”
