The former Real Madrid star started his first league game for United against Everton over the weekend, being awarded Man of the Match for his dominant display in the centre of the park. Casemiro was at fault for Everton’s opener but bounced back, assisting Cristiano Ronaldo’s winner in the 44th minute after Antony had equalised.
Speaking about the performance, Ten Hag said: “He is experienced. Even after a small mistake, he [remained] composed, he is doing the right things. He has a huge impact on the game by winning so many balls and always in good positions to receive balls, to link up, to pass around, and he was really important with the goal. A good ball in, a good pass to Cristiano and a good finish.”
