Futre declares Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro 'level of Michael Phelps!'

Atletico Madrid hero Paulo Futre has scoffed at the manner of Real Madrid's win at Levante last night.

Futre was particularly unimpressed with the penalty won by Casemiro.

Casemiro earned a spotkick after being fouled by Cheick Doukouré.

And Futre reacted by stating on social media: "As a No. 1 swimmer I see, I can say that Casemiro's level is Michael Phelps! My respects."
