Former Manchester United(Man U) ace, Dwight Yorke, has urged the club’s manager, Erik ten Hag to discipline midfielder Casemiro.
Yorke believes Casemiro is not sticking to his task in Man United’s midfield, adding that the Brazilian is getting carried away.
He spoke ahead of Man United’s Premier League tie with Brighton at Old Trafford.
“Casemiro had a great debut season where he scored some crucial games and I think he is getting a bit carried away by venturing forward too much,” Yorke said.
“He’s supposed to be the anchor in midfield, but I keep seeing him in advanced positions. He’s ahead of the play most of the time, and it is difficult for him to make those runs back.
“Casemiro needs to relax and stop trying to play in the final third. He was never known as a goalscorer at Madrid, and I think the manager needs to tell him to stay in the number six position.
“He doesn’t have the energy to track back so often, and that is why you are seeing United being overwhelmed in the middle of the park. I’d say more discipline is needed as we all know how good he is when he plays in his natural position.”
Meanwhile, Man United have already signed Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina on loan to help Casemiro with the defensive duties in midfield.
