MADRID, Nov 9 (.) –
The Brazilian midfielder of Real Madrid, Carlos Henrique Casemiro, highlighted the figure of his coach Carlo Ancelotti, especially his “incredible determination to win and to teach with all his experience”, and also makes it clear that he will be able to tell his “grandchildren” that He played for many years with “two football icons” like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
“Each coach has his working method and fortunately we are adapting very well to Carlo Ancelotti’s method, as we did for a long time with Zidane, but I want to highlight one point in particular that has a lot of charm from Ancelotti. He is a 62-year-old man. , with more than 40 in football and that he has already conquered everything, but his determination to win and to teach us with all his experience every day is incredible, “Casemiro said in an interview with ‘ESPN Brasil’.
The midfielder also acknowledges that his compatriot Vinicius “is going through his best moment.” “He is in a special phase and, in addition, he is young, so he has great growth potential,” said the forward.
For the international, “it is a privilege to play” alongside Karim Benzema, whom he supports “to win the Ballon d’Or”, and alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in midfield. “I will not forget that I have played with them for so long throughout my life and I will tell my grandchildren that I was able to play with two exceptional players, with two football icons,” he confessed.
Casemiro also does not forget that Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane “are two icons in the history of Real Madrid”, but that both Eder Militao and David Alaba, “an exceptional player”, are doing “very well”, while avoiding comparisons with N’Golo Kanté about who is the best at his job because, despite the fact that the Frenchman is “extraordinary”, he believes that he plays for Chelsea “in a different position, with more freedom of attack” and it is Jorginho who is the ” first defensive half “.
“It is also worth remembering that there are other players of the highest level in this role, such as Busquets and Fabinho. But just because they already mention me as one of the best, I am happy and I continue working to evolve more and more,” he added, clarifying trying to “evolve more and more about understanding the game” in his position on the field. “Experience is important for that and, of course, playing for a club like Real Madrid, together with great players, it is easier to improve in all aspects,” he stressed.
Finally, the Brazilian midfielder assured that he “never” could imagine that he could “build such an important career” at Real Madrid. “That is why I value each game with this shirt and it is very difficult to choose just one. Each Real Madrid game is important and I see each one as if it were the first. It is a privilege to play for so many years for the biggest club in the world and I believe that I will only have the scale of what I have managed to build when all this is over, “he was honest.
