Manchester United new boy Casemiro perfect for English football - Raphael Varane

Raphael Varane has said Manchester United new signing Casemiro is perfectly suited to English football and has backed his former Real Madrid teammate to be a success at Old Trafford.

Casemiro has completed his move to United and watched from the stands as boss Erik ten Hag's team earned a memorable 2-1 win over Liverpool on Monday.

Varane knows all about the Brazil midfielder after their time together at the Bernabeu and said he is the perfect addition to the squad.

"I know perfectly his quality, he can bring this balance to the team and his mentality," Varane said.

"He's a warrior, so I think he will really enjoy English football. I know him.

"I think it was a perfect night for him to meet Old Trafford because the atmosphere was absolutely amazing, and he brings a victory so it's nice."

Varane and Casemiro were part of the Madrid team that won the Champions League four times between 2014 and 2018.

Varane joined United last summer in search of a new challenge, and the France international said Casemiro expressed the same reason when joining him in Manchester.
