The gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United has already been filled with Casemiro taking on a new role.

Unlike his former Old Trafford teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has been passing on his knowledge to the club’s talented youth.

Casemiro, unlike Cristiano Ronaldo, has spent a significant amount of time working with Manchester United’s youth prospects since joining the club from Real Madrid.

Casemiro, 30, became United’s flagship summer signing when he left Real Madrid for the Premier League giants in a deal for up to ¬£70 million.

Erik ten Hag eased the Brazilian enforcer into life at Old Trafford, but he has since become one of the club’s most important players, according to a new report. now outlined how the multi-time Champions League winner’s influence has already extended far beyond the football pitch.

Casemiro, on the other hand, is unavailable for selection after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the midweek draw at Crystal Palace. And former Manchester United star Gary Neville stated earlier this week that Casemiro’s absence means Arsenal must be regarded the favorites ahead of Sunday’s encounter.

He stated to Sky Sports: “Last time, they [United] overcame them [Arsenal] without Casemiro. They’ll need to play exceptionally well and defend effectively, especially in the opening half hour when Arsenal is on fire, but they don’t have a strong reserve.

“If you get through that first period of the game, what you’re going to face is what you’re going to face later on in the game. They had that problem against Newcastle, who defended really well against them. But Arsenal are in great form, massive favourites for the game with Casemiro out.

United have got to hang in there for the first part of the game and they are dangerous on the counter-attack. But without Casemiro, I expect Arsenal to win on Sunday.”
