Man Utd fans all saying the same thing about Casemiro after clip of him wiping out Liverpool's James Milner goes viral | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans have lauded Casemiro after a clip went viral of him chopping down Liverpool's James Milner while at Real Madrid.

The 30-year-old Brazilian agreed a £70million move to Old Trafford last week as Erik ten Hag secured his fourth summer signing.



Following Casemiro's arrival – which will see him earn £350,000 a week – social media latched onto an old video of the midfielder crunching Liverpool man Milner.

It occurred during the second leg of a Champions League quarter-final clash between the Reds and Madrid in 2021.

With Los Blancos 3-1 up from the first leg in the Bernabeu, Milner decided to lay an early one on striker Karim Benzema in the return fixture at Anfield.

Shortly after that altercation, Casemiro then ruthlessly scythed Milner down on the near touchline as Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the Liverpool bench jumped up to furiously react.

Left-back Andy Robertson got in the face of Casemiro – who escaped with a booking despite VAR checking for a possible red card.

The game ended goalless as Madrid progressed before losing to Chelsea in the last four.

Meanwhile, Man Utd fans are excited by the prospect of the South American fitting into their side.

He is expected to be unveiled at Old Trafford ahead of the clash with Liverpool on Monday night, but will play no part in the game itself.

However, that did not stop Red Devils supporters from praising Casemiro in response to his foul on Milner last year.

One social media user said: "Pay Casemiro whatever he wants."

While another added: "That's a character we need in the dressing room. #noBS."

And a third continued the Casemiro complements, saying: "If he does clatter into people like that, we need that.

"This team has been so soft and easy to play against for too long. Need some bite about this team."
