Manchester United midfielder, Casemiro has revealed that his name has been wrongly spelt on shirts all this while and he never bothered to make a correction.

The 30-year-old Brazilian made the revelation in an interview with Football Focus.

Casemiro became a household name at Real Madrid, where he won 18 trophies, including five UEFA Champions Leagues, before switching to United in August 2022.

Since turning professional while playing for Sau Paulo in 2010, the defensive midfielder has maintained the name Casemiro.

He told Football Focus that he has not bothered to correct it because he is deeply superstitious.

“So the thing is, my name is Carlos Henrique Casimiro, with an “I” there.

“I remember that I played a game for Sao Paulo and the club 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.’” he said.
