The former French star has made disparaging remarks about two new arrivals at Old Trafford this season.
After initial hurdles, Manchester United is now “closer” to qualifying for the Champions League group stage. The likelihood of instructors and coaches Erik ten Hag earning tickets to the continent’s most iconic stadium next year is extremely strong. This is in sharp contrast to the Dutch captain’s first description of a spiritless and worn-out Manchester United.
The Red Devils’ transformation has repercussions for numerous causes.
In addition to coach Ten Hag’s professional difficulties, it is impossible to ignore the impact of youngsters Casemiro, Antony, and Lisandro Martinez.
Together, they have “smashed” all doubts regarding the strength of Manchester United.
Patrice Evra heaped admiration on two young players named Martinez and Casemiro during an interview with BetFair. This dynamic combo has been instrumental in Man United’s rise to fifth place in the rankings with just under half of the 2022–23 campaign completed. The former French player commented as follows:
“Casemiro has had a significant influence. He is widely regarded as one of the top midfielders in the world at the moment. You can clearly tell that this is the kind of DNA that the supporters of Man United want to see. I admire how committed Casemiro is to maintaining his discipline since I know that hard work is the key to success.
This season, Lisandro Martinez was another player who impressed me.
When he originally signed with the team at the beginning of the season, everyone was talking about how tall he was.
However, this individual is a pit bull.
He had a tough demeanor.
This is what the supporters of Manchester United have been hoping to witness.
Players from South America have that fiery desire, they want to offer everything they have, and they play with their whole hearts.
It is clear that he wants to make a contribution to the club, and as a result, any teammate who plays alongside him will find that he takes care of everything.”
In the most recent match, which was the fourth round of the English League Cup, coach Ten Hag stunned everyone when he arranged for Casemiro to play in the central defensive position. The match ended with a score of 2-0 in favor of the team. The trust placed in the Brazilian player by the 52-year-old tactician has been repaid. In addition to keeping a clean sheet for Manchester United, Casemiro was instrumental in the development of a defensive play for the team as a result of his excellent regulation.
In the meanwhile, there is no evidence to suggest that Martinez has returned to the training facility in Carrington.
The midfielder’s absence from Man United in 1998 was prolonged as a result of making it to the World Cup final and winning the championship.
Despite this, though, coach Ten Hag has not changed his mind about picking Martinez to play next to senior Raphael Varane.
