Casemiro 'so happy' with Real Madrid return

Casemiro is excited to be back in the Real Madrid team this week.

The midfielder featured in the Club World Cup semifinal against Kashima Antlers.

Casemiro said, “I'm so happy to be back playing with my teammates. It's been a harsh lesson but I'm back now and I'm ready when the coach needs me. I would like to thank the doctors and the physios for how much they've helped me and the kindness they've shown.

"They've been keen to get me back playing. Now I have to get back match-fit so I can play like I was doing before the injury.

“We go away with the job done, we're very happy. We have to respect the opposition, it'll be a tough game. If they're in the final, they're there on merit. We're eager to win the final because it's a hugely important title for us. We have to head into this game as we always do, this club always demands the best."
