Man Utd Player, Casemiro Uses Wrong Jersey Name



Man Utd Player, Casemiro Uses Wrong Name

Manchester United midfielder Casemiro wears the wrong name on the back of his shirt, and has done so for his entire career.

The Brazilian midfielder, who joined United from Real Madrid over the summer, has Casemiro – with an E – on the back of his shirt. However, his name is Carlos Henrique Casimiro – with an I.

He has opened up about the strange situation, explaining the difference in spelling owes a bit to superstition dating back to his time at Sao Paulo.

When the 30-year-old takes to the field with the different spelling, it’s down to a mistake which has not been corrected in more than a decade, but he had a part to play in it not being corrected.

“So the thing is, my name is Carlos Henrique Casimiro, with an ‘I’ there,” Casemiro told Football Focus. “I remember that I played a game for Sao Paulo and they got my name wrong. They wrote it with an ‘E’.

“I played really well in that game and as I’m a superstitious person, I said to them ‘just leave it like that, as things are going well’. So the name stuck, but my name is Carlos Henrique Casimiro.

“It was a mistake made in one game, the name stuck and I said: ‘No need to change it, leave it as it is’.”

Since establishing himself in United’s first team, Casemiro – or should that be Casimiro – has shown his value to Erik ten Hag’s team.
