“Absolute disgrace”: Former United man pours scorn on Casemiro’s dreadful performances

Former Manchester United goalkeeper turned podcaster, Ben Foster, has poured scorn on Casemiro’s role or lack of, in Bournemouth’s second goal last weekend.

United were once again cut open with ease as the Cherries dominated proceedings at the Vitality Stadium, especially in the first half.

Both goals were the result of poor defending as Willy Kambwala slipped at the worst possible time and his defensive partner, Harry Maguire, was nowhere to be seen to help cover the youngster’s error.

The second goal, scored by Justin Kluivert, was another classic example of how not to defend, as the winger was given all the space he could dream of to smash the ball into Andre Onana’s net.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp was the first to highlight Casemiro’s role in the goal claiming, “right now he looks like he’s in Soccer Aid. He looks like he’s playing at such a pace where the game is a bit of fun and there’s celebrities coming on the pitch”.

Ben Foster has also spoken out on the poor play by the experienced Brazilian, especially during Kluivert’s strike.

Speaking on The Fozcast podcast he claimed, “the second goal, Casemiro he’s a holding midfielder. He should be that engine, that rat in the midfield, the disruptor – somebody that breaks up all the attacks, gets in people’s faces”.

“The second goal, for me, is an absolute disgrace. It’s an absolute disgrace. He’s allowed to wander into that space and get his shot off”.

“Casemiro almost notices at the last second, meanders in, hangs a leg in there and I’m thinking, do you know what? If I was a manager of a team and my holding midfielder did that, that action there and then, I’d say that’ll do. You, come off”.
