Real Madrid midfielder, Federico Valverde, has told Manchester United’s summer signing Casemiro that he was sad that he left Santiago Bernabeu for the Red Devils.
Casemiro left Real Madrid for Man United for £63.4million in August, and Valverde has reflected on the Brazilian’s departure.
Valverde admitted that he missed Casemiro at the Real Madrid dressing room.
The Uruguayan star has been in fine form at the start of the new season, scoring four goals.
Valverde was on the scoresheet in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid at the weekend.
“It was very sad, obviously. For me, he was more than a teammate. He was a very special person, who opened doors for me at all times, advised me, and taught me the values of this team and this club. He always supported me,” Valverde told TNT Sports (via Bola VIP).
“He was my brother in the locker room. I miss him already, but I wish Casemiro and his whole family all the best always, wherever they are.”
