Dea Gea indicates who will replace Casemiro in the next 3 games

The 30-year-old midfielder has been shining since moving to MU from Real in the summer of 2022 for £ 70 million. Casemiro became an irreplaceable element in the club’s midfield under Erik ten Hag. However, Casemiro had to receive a red card directly in MU’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.


The star born in 1992 received a red card after the situation of strangling Will Hughes. This means that he will miss MU’s next 3 matches in the Premier League. Including 2 matches against Leeds United (1 out of 5 matches) that in round 8 and with Leicester. Goalkeeper De Gea believes Marcel Sabitzer is ready to replace Casemiro in case of Casemiro’s absence.

The Austrian international joined Manchester United on loan from Bayern Munich on the final day of the winter 2023 transfer window following the long-term injury of Christian Eriksen. Eriksen’s absence plus Casemiro’s suspension make it more likely that Sabitzer will start in the next three games of the Reds: “We have lost Christian, now Casemiro, players who are really important to the Reds. But we have a squad with good depth. The players are ready to go, everyone is very focused.

Sabitzer had a good debut. He played well for the last 20 minutes against Crystal Palace. He holds the ball confidently, is strong, and tackles the ball very well. Sabitzer is an experienced man, he has played a lot in the Bundesliga. Now he will have to show his ability, I believe Sabitzer will be of great help to the team.”

According to the schedule, Casemiro will return in the English League Cup final against Newcastle on February 26 at Wembley. Besides, he appeared in 2 matches against Barca in the Europa League play-off round.
