Casemiro had words with Bruno at full-time.

Casemiro appeared to take issue with Bruno Fernandes at full-time of Manchester United’s Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

Man United won the game at Wembley to take home their first trophy since winning the Europa League in 2017. Casemiro scored the opening goal of the match, guiding home a perfect cross by Luke Shaw from a free-kick in the first half.

A few minutes later, Newcastle defender Sven Botman inadvertently deflected the ball into his own net from Marcus Rashford’s shot.

Man United had the opportunity to make it 3-0 late in the second half. Bruno Fernandes broke free into a three versus one scenario with Jadon Sancho free in the penalty area.

The Portugal midfielder, Man United’s captain on the day, chose to go it alone, however, and saw his shot saved by Loris Karius.

Following the full-time whistle, Casemiro appeared to take issue with Bruno for his decision not to pass.

The Brazil midfielder, who was named man of the match on the day, broke from the celebrations to take issue with a moment from the game.

Roy Keane: Carabao Cup final could be the start of success for Man United.

The good times, however, could be back for the Red Devils. According to Roy Keane, Man United’s first trophy win in six years could be the start of the ‘good days’ returning to Old Trafford.

“Look at the players’ and supporters’ reaction, they’ve been desperate for success,” Keane said at full-time on Sky Sports.

“All the build-up was about Newcastle and how desperate they were. But these players, the manager, it’s been five, six, seven years for Man Utd now, that seems a long time.

“They deserve the victory, they were efficient, two good goals. It was a long way back for Newcastle who stuck at it, but hopefully the start of the good days coming back to United.”
