​Man Utd boss ten Hag on Casemiro signing: We need more leaders

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is happy about the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid.

The Red Devils secured the Brazilian defensive midfielder in a big money move last week.

Casemiro was at Old Trafford for an unveiling, but did not participate in the game, when they took on Liverpool on Monday in the Premier League.

Asked about Casemiro’s qualities on and off the pitch, Ten Hag stated: “We need more leaders. When you want a winning team, you need more leaders.

“We have to bring it in every game, not only against Liverpool. We were talking about leadership and we were talking about leadership on the pitch but he [Casemiro] is one as well.

“He knows the game, he knows how to win. In his career he’s won so many trophies and that’s important to have in your team.

“Raphael Varane has it, so with him and Casemiro, [Cristiano] Ronaldo has it, you need some as a guidance for young players who didn’t achieve the trophies until now, but that’s what we want to achieve.”
