Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has compared the differences between the Premier League and La Liga.
The Brazilian spent nine years at Real Madrid, winning everything on offer to him throughout his time in Spain, including five Champions Leagues, three La Liga titles, three Supercopa de Espanas and many more.
Yesterday, he secured his first piece of silverware with the Red Devils, which also marked the end of their six-year trophy drought when they won the Carabao Cup at Wembley after defeating Newcastle United.
After arriving at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag took his time implementing Casemiro into the starting line-up. This was likely due to the drastic change of pace and physicality that hits players as soon as they join the English top flight, hence why it is the most competitive league in world football.
The 31-year-old has since found his feet and has been exceptional in the squad.

Speaking via the club website, he said: “Well, honestly, it’s different. Especially because of the different circumstances, like the intensity of the games here. I’m not trying to underestimate La Liga, but the games here are much more difficult, there’s a higher number of transitions.”
