Casemiro is content even with lack of game-time


Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has claimed that he is still happy despite the fact he has not started a game for Los Blancos yet in 2013/14.

The Brazilian midfielder, 21, was impressive in pre-season, but hasn’t yet made a claim for a starting berth.

However, in an interview with the official website, Casemiro said: “I’m calm. I turn up to training every day full of hope and feeling happy. I’m part of the Real Madrid squad and many people out there would love to be in my place.”

He added: “I’m working hard to make the most of my opportunities and be ready. I work hard and I respect the gaffer’s decisions. It’s a pleasure to be with real Madrid and at this stadium, I love it”.

Casemiro spoke about his debut too, saying: “I came out to warm up and looked at the stands to contemplate how many fans were there, and I remember thinking that it was incredible. It was a truly impressive sensation.”

He also heaped praise on team mate Ronaldo, and joined the chorus of those calling for him to win the Ballon d’Or this year.

“He has to win the Ballon d’Or. He trains well, always in a good mood. He scores two goals in a game and still wants more,” he stated.
