Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has named club legend Paul Scholes as his football idol.
Casemiro said he would have loved to play with Scholes in his exciting career.
Speaking ahead of Man United’s Premier League derby with Manchester City, the Brazil international said, as quoted by MEN, “That’s a very easy question. It would have to be Scholes. He’s a player I admired a lot as a kid.”
“I’ve said this on many occasions, not only because I’m here now. I used to say this when I was at Real Madrid.
“He’s an idol to me, and it would be an absolute pleasure to play alongside him, given all he’s won here and what he represents to Manchester United.”
