Casemiro leaves the real Madrid nearly ten years after landing on Valdebebas. After those first hard months, with cold, in which he saw that his teammates touched the ball at a higher rate than his, the Brazilian began to forge his own legend in the white club. A decade later, in pure character, ‘Casemito’ he has earned a chapter in madridista history.
HIS DEBUT AGAINST BETIS WITH MOURINHO
Casemiro came from Sao Paulo at the end of January 2013, with his girlfriend Anna as the only company, to play in the Castile After rejecting offers of great clubs in Europe. They told him that he was crazy for accepting to play in a subsidiary and he explained himself with a phrase that over the years has proved him right. “I take two steps back to take ten steps forward.” On April 20 Mourinho made him debut as a starter against Betis. And the Bernabu met him.
THE NIGHT OF DORTMUND
If there is a foundational night for the ‘Casemito’, that’s the one at Signal Iduna Park. Without that, if the path of the Tenth had ended in the yellow hell, maybe nothing that happened after that was real. Real Madrid defended 3-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinals, but Borussia went 2-0 up in just over half an hour and the Whites’ legs shook. Ancelotti pulled him in the final stretch and in 17 prodigious minutes it cooled the volcano of Dortmund. “I always say that everything was born against Dortmund. It’s a team that changed my life. It’s going to be one of the most special games. The feeling I got from that night against Borussia is that in those 17 minutes I showed everyone world that could play for Real Madrid,” the player told MARCA.
THE TENTH GAVE HIM RIGHT
Although I did not participate in the final, Casemiro was part of that magical night in which Real Madrid returned to the throne of European football. After his great night in Dortmund, the Whites’ victory in Lisbon proved him right: he had taken ten steps forward and had achieved what compatriots like Ronaldo Nazario They couldn’t win the Champions League.
HIS RETURN FROM PORTO
Casemiro’s first four seasons at Real Madrid translated into four Champions League. The only year that was missing, the 14-15 season, the white team was eliminated against Juve in the semifinals. After spending a year on loan in Porto, where he grew up and established himself in European football, he returned home a man, a soldier to Rafa Bentez… and to Zidane shortly after.
THE AGNIC GOAL AGAINST LAS PALMAS
Few moments make you feel more like a Real Madrid player that a decisive goal in the last minute. Casemiro experienced it in the palms, where he scored his first goal with the white shirt. He headed in a corner in the 89th minute of a match that UD had tied in the 87th minute. His celebration with his thumbs in his mouth and Ramos on the hump elevated him even more.
EXHIBITION AT THE CAMP NOU
Although it took a bit for Case to get into the eleven with Zidane, there was a moment of revelation for the French coach. His exhibition at the Camp Nou Clsico on 15-16 (Madrid won 1-2) he finished making the coach fall in love, who since then considered him untouchablebeing a starter in the three consecutive Champions League finals that Madrid played and won in those years.
THE GREAT GOAL OF THE CARDIFF FINAL
Precisely in one of those finals, the one in Cardiff against Juve, Casemiro had the pleasure of going down in history as a scorer. A zurriagazo from afar that they are poisoned and before which nothing could be done Buffon. That goal, 2-1, spurred a Madrid that three minutes later sentenced with 3-1 Christian. Casemiro’s run to celebrate the goal, with thousands of white scarves in his wake, It is a mural that not everyone can boast.
DEAR… AND SHAVED IN THE DRESSING ROOM
The fans of Real Madrid not only elevate the footballers to the category of myth for their performance on the pitch, but also for the degree of affection of the squad towards the player in question. That Casemiro was one more and that he had won the favor of the heavyweights of the squad was seen in gestures such as Marcelo, shaving Casemiro in the same locker room in Cardiff in an iconic image of that celebration.
THE PHOTOS OF THE CMK WITH THE CHAMPIONS
When Kroos Madrid arrived, Casemiro headed for Porto. But since football united them with modric a year later, the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ as he called them Ancelotti did not stop winning… and taking photos. Champions after Champions, title after title, there were Casemiro, Modric and Kroos claiming the attention of the photographers to immortalize one more triumph. A tradition for one of the best midfielders in the history of world football.
THE CHILEAN OF THE METROPOLITAN
Casemiro leaves Real Madrid with 31 goals, but very well chosen. One of the most remembered, both for its beauty and its importance, was the Chilean goal that marked Atlético in the Metropolitanoa foreshortening in the air before which Jan Oblak could do nothing.
ZIDANE’S HUG AFTER THE 2020 SUPERCUP
Zidane do not understand your Madrid without Casemiro. Over the years, at Zizou’s ‘second coming’, the plan was the same. The team was based on the Brazilian, the cornerstone of the French system. The admiration of a former soccer player who was so different from his time as a player and the way he earned his respect They saw each other in the embrace after winning the 2020 Spanish Super Cup. “Come here, you bastard, you’re a monster,” the technician told him.
HIS CELEBRATION OF VINICIUS’ GOAL IN THE CLASICO
In recent seasons, with the Brazilian landing in Valdebebas, Case has also been a godfather to the youngest, a role model for Vinicius, Rodrygo or Militao. His celebration of Vinicius’s goal against Barcelona at the Bernabu, that goal that Vini longed for so much, defines his madridismo and his commitment as a veteran.
HIS LAST TITLE…AS MVP
His last title with Real Madrid was the European Super Cup. And in case there were any doubts about his performance after almost a decade in white, Case leaves with the MVP of the final under his arm. An exhibition, assistance included, so that the Real Madrid museum has a little bit more of it.
HIS FAREWELL FROM REAL MADRID
It will be the culmination of his career at Real Madrid. Be Casemiro who writes the final point of a success story, surely with a farewell to the level of his affection for the Madrid fans and the admiration that the white parish professes him. Casemito’s goodbye.
