“He’s been disrespected…” – Louis Saha slams ‘crazy’ criticism of Man United star



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has slammed ‘crazy’ criticism of one current player and claimed he has been ‘disrespected’ this season.

Casemiro, 32, joined Manchester United in the summer of 2022 and had a successful individual season in his debut campaign in England.

However, this season has been challenging for the Brazilian midfielder, casting doubt on his future at Old Trafford.

With three years left on his contract, the United midfielder has been linked with a summer exit. Clubs from Saudi Arabia are interested in the 32-year-old.

He has recently been forced to fill in at centre-back due to the defensive injury crisis at the club, and has been exposed in multiple games.

INEOS will be looking to secure at least £30 million for the five-time Champions League winner to bolster their summer recruitment.

However, on the flip side of things, former United striker Louis Saha believes that Casemiro has been disrespected this season and has highlighted Jamie Carragher’s recent comments on the former Real Madrid star as “crazy”.

“Yes I do believe he’s been disrespected,” Saha told BetFred. “When it comes to Manchester United, you could criticise many of the players and believe from last year, Casemiro has been dragged into a bit of a trap.

“He scored a lot of goals last season, and people probably expected him to do the same this season, but that’s never been his game. 

“The criticism has been severe and harsh, and then you hear Jamie Carragher almost inviting Casemiro to move to Saudi Arabia or the MLS. That’s crazy. I think it was disrespectful because nobody should advise someone in that way.

“I know it’s his job, but I don’t believe Jamie should have said that because Casemiro wants to do good and because of everything he’s achieved in the game, he faces more scrutiny than others and people try and bring him down as quick as they possibly can.

“That’s not fair. Everybody’s going to make mistakes and have bad games, but that doesn’t mean that every little thing needs to be scrutinised. I think the criticism has been very harsh.”
