You need to do better, Man Utd will suffer this season – Berbatov tells midfielder
Dimitar Berbatov, a former striker for Manchester United, has urged Casemiro, a midfielder for the team, to perform better this year.
If Casemiro is not at his best for Erik ten Hag's team this season, according to Berbatov, Manchester United will suffer.
The first two Premier League games Man United played this season against Wolves and Tottenham saw them win one and lose one.
One player who has struggled to stand out in those matches is Casemiro, who has faced both Wolves and Tottenham.
“Casemiro needs to do better, based on the standards that he has shown over several years at Real Madrid and last season at United,” Berbatov wrote in his Betfair column.
“The standards he has set for himself are really high.”
He added, “In the first couple of games, Casemiro has not played at the standards that we saw of him. I’m sure that he knows it.
“In the case of Casemiro, you know how good a player he is and if he’s not in his best form then the team is going to suffer.”
