EPL: Garth Crooks names Man Utd star who can bring best out of Ronaldo


Former Manchester United forward, Garth Crooks, has identified midfielder Casemiro as the Red Devils player who can bring the best out of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Casemiro joined Man United in August for a reported fee of around £64 million.

The Brazilian only made his first Premier League start in a 2-1 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Casemiro provided the assist for Manchester United’s second goal, scored by Ronaldo.

However, Crooks believes that Casemiro could turn out to be a great signing for Man United and could also help his former Real Madrid teammate Ronaldo return to form.

“Casemiro was having a nightmare for Manchester United when he redeemed himself and set up his former Real Madrid teammate for his 700th club career goal,” Crooks said while naming his team of the week on the BBC.

“The finish by Cristiano Ronaldo was as crisp as I have seen from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. It was as if the moment he was put through, there was no doubt he would score.

“If Casemiro can come to terms with the pace of the Premier League, especially in the big games, then he might prove to be a valuable asset for United – but more importantly for Ronaldo.”
