Antony sends message to Casemiro ahead of Manchester United’s Europa League campaign

Casemiro is expected to make his first Manchester United start on Thursday night as the Europa League kicks off.

The midfielder has had to wait for his chance as a starter, with manager Erik ten Hag reluctant to change a winning team.

An exception was made for winger Antony, who went straight into the line-up against Arsenal and scored on his debut.

Now the pair are getting ready to potentially line-up together against Real Sociedad, and they are looking forward to the clash at Old Trafford.

Antony and Casemiro have been interacting on social media ahead of Thursday’s match, with the winger replying to the midfielder with a short message.

His three-word message read, “Always together brother.”

Thursday nights may not be the Champions League football Casemiro is used to, but he will be hoping this one season is simply a detour for him.

United can qualify for Europe’s top competition by either winning the Europa League, or finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

At this early stage of the season, United can be optimistic of both, especially with the quality of players brought in this summer.

Both Casemiro and Antony hope to play a major role for United this season, the club expect them to after the money paid, and it will be a great chance to take a closer look at both of them in action on Thursday night.
