Man Utd legend Scholes likens Casemiro to Keane

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has likened Casemiro to former teammate Roy Keane.

Scholes insists Casemiro is “as close to Roy Keane as I have seen” in his latest glowing review of the Manchester United midfielder.

“You can see the big difference when he’s not in the team,” Scholes said of the former Real Madrid enforcer. “You think of the Arsenal game when he wasn’t there, I always talk about having a coach on the football pitch, and for Ten Hag, he’s that man.

“He knows where he wants everyone to be. I’ve said this before, a lot of us have been surprised by the quality of his play because at Madrid it was about [Toni] Kroos and [Luka] Modric, but his passes forward, his awareness of people around him, he’s been fantastic.

“People say he’s a holding midfield player – I don’t see that. I think he does everything. He’s as close to Roy Keane as I have seen. As a Man United midfield player, you should be involved with everything. You should be able to go forward, you should be able to play a pass and help defend. I think he’s been fantastic.”
