Casemiro says goodbye to Madrid between tears: ‘I’ll come back one day’

“I’ve won a lot of titles, but the biggest title I’ve had is when I went out every day to train at this club,” said the Brazilian pivot when he said goodbye to the ‘white house’.

Surrounded by his family, his former teammates, who was his coach and a president who had heartfelt words for a football player and a person who has earned everyone’s respect and affection with exemplary behavior, Carlos Henrique Casemiro said goodbye to Real Madrid this Monday in an emotional act that lived up to its legend in the ‘white house’. “I’ve won a lot of titles, but the biggest title I’ve had was when I went out every day to come and train at this club,” said the Brazilian midfielder, who appeared in Valdebebas Sports City, flanked by the 18 trophies. he won wearing the elastic of the Chamartín outfit.

Overwhelmed with emotion, Casemiro struggled to begin his speech. She was held back by the tears that bathed her face and closed her throat. Gone is a time when he grew as a footballer and as a person into a figure revered by Real Madrid for his humility, self-sacrifice and winning genes. “The lived history is incredible. This club has the best, that’s why it’s always the best, it will keep winning. It is the identity of this club and this city. I want to make it clear that one day I will return to return the love they gave me. To continue to help this club. I am sure that everything I have learned here will strengthen me to continue my career at a great club like Manchester United,” said the São Paulo player when his feelings allowed him to expand, always with the reticence that characterizes is for a player Florentino Pérez described it as an “exemplary of dedication and values” and a “reference of work, effort, sacrifice and respect.”

“When I left Sao Paulo it was clear to me that I was going to play in the first team. But before that I had to play for Castilla. It was a great illusion because I learned values ​​in that quarry, that’s the best thing about this club The future is this quarry,” said Casemiro, recalling that arrival in the Spanish capital in early 2013, when Real Madrid tied a footballer who already made his debut with the Brazilian team, but who had also gone through difficult times on the sports field . Nevertheless, at the request of Ramón Martínez, the Chamartín club put a lot of effort into the arrival of a player who would more than heed the confidence in his talent in the coming years.

For all this, Casemiro thanked the club that trained him “as a person and player”, after Florentino Perez recalled that the services rendered had given him the right to decide his future. “Those of us who know you wanted to leave the image of the champion that you are, with that best player in the Super Cup and the Ballon d’Or nomination. You go to a friendly club, Manchester United, legendary. Where you you will always be an ambassador of Real Madrid, you will always be one of us,” said the president of Real Madrid.

Casemiro leaves with 18 titles to his name as a Real Madrid footballer: five Champions Leagues, three La Liga titles, three European Super Cups, one Copa del Rey, three Club World Cups and three Spanish Super Cups. In his eight seasons with the white jacket, he played 336 games, scoring 31 goals and above all he became a fundamental figure for the Chamartín team to dominate the old continent with an iron fist, in good measure thanks to his commitment, courage, dedication and tactical sense made him the perfect complement for Modric and Kroos. Together with the brilliant Croatian midfielder and the German metronome, he formed a midfield trident unrivaled in the past decade, catapulting Real Madrid to a stage of splendor not seen since the time of Alfredo Di Stefano.

He landed in the Spanish capital from Sao Paulo in early 2013. His first destination was Castilla, but Jose Mourinho soon gave him the alternative to Real Madrid’s first team on April 20, 2013, in a league game against Betis. There he started writing a path that eventually transformed him into a legend of the most successful and demanding club in the world. Before being loaned to Porto, where he grew exponentially under Julen Lopetegui, he made his mark with a performance against Borussia Dortmund that was decisive for Real Madrid to cancel the much-anticipated Decima in Lisbon. He came on to replace Asier Illarramendi when Carlo Ancelotti’s team were on the brink of elimination and helped seal the pass with a formidable racing game in the 20 minutes he was on the pitch, bringing together the virtues he would later form as a core element of Real Madrid for the last eight seasons.

That match began to forge a myth that Casemiro would judge on his return to Real Madrid, where Zinedine Zidane made him one of his Praetorians and was also a vital element in the plans of Julen Lopetegui, Santiago Solari and Carlo Ancelotti. Now he is entering a new phase with the mission to revive Manchester United, where he will arrive this afternoon to be presented in the run-up to the match that will measure the ‘red devils’ against Liverpool. The €70m plus 15 in variables paid out by the Mancunian club break the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ and deprive Real Madrid of a heavyweight in the dressing room, but the memory Casemiro leaves behind in Chamartín will be lasting.
