New Manchester United signing Casemiro is meticulous in his match preparations, including in-depth research on referees, according to a close friend. 

Bruno dos Anjos, friend and former team-mate of the £70million Brazilian midfielder, has revealed that the new United signing regularly commissions documents on referees, including where they are from, their management style and whether they have a job outside of football. 

Casemiro joined the Red Devils earlier this week, after a trophy-laden nine-year spell in the Spanish capital with Real Madrid.

Dos Anjos revealed in an interview with The Telegraph: ‘He plays in a role where you talk a lot to the referees and are more likely to receive a card. 

‘So it’s important that they understand what he says and that he’s able to argue with them if necessary as well. 

‘It may be helpful in certain situations.’

The midfielder began learning English at Real Madrid to give him an edge over his opponents

Casemiro has spoken of his excitement at playing for his new club

And the Brazil international had already begun to learn English before his move to United was even discussed, according to his close friend, in order to make it easier to communicate with officials, so meticulous is his preparation. 

The 30-year-old reportedly also believes it gives he and his side an edge over their rivals, as United fans get an early insight into the mentality of their serial-winning new man. 

The five-time Champions League winner has already given his first official interview as a United player and told fans how he is already ready and raring to get going in the iconic red shirt at Old Trafford. 

He said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted. I feel like I’m 20 or 18 years of age, I’m raring to go, I’m excited to be amongst my teammates, playing in the stadium and I think that it’s just huge excitement and I’m absolutely delighted.

Bruno dos Anjos claims Casemiro’s position leaves him need to talk to referees more often

‘I don’t know whether many people know this but I played in a competition here when I was 15, when I was at São Paulo, and you have that film that runs through your mind that 15 years later you come back here to play for Manchester United and not in your wildest dreams would you imagine yourself playing here. 

‘Obviously when I played in that Nike Cup I would have liked to come here and now that I’m here again I’m the happiest man alive and I can’t wait to produce on the pitch and help out my teammates and to help Manchester United to win games and to go on to win trophies.

‘Well, it’s the biggest club in England. It’s the club with the most amount of titles. So, I’m really happy and just can’t wait to get going.’
