Casemiro confessed “it’s a pleasure to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo” at Real Madrid after his brace beat Eibar 2-1 on Saturday.
Ronaldo took his tally to 13 goals in his last six games, earning the praise of Casemiro, who urged Madrid to “keep enjoying” the exploits of “the best player in the world”.
“We suffered a lot, we worked hard, we knew that we had to suffer in order to win,” the midfielder said after the game.
“We played against a great team, on a small pitch against a team that press high.
“We’re going step by step, game by game. We’re on a good run of form, today we suffered but we played like we needed to.
“Now we have a week to work hard and also rest because we have some big games coming up.
“Modric? We know the quality he has, he’s been very good since his injury. He’s indispensable for the team.
“Ronaldo? He’s like he’s always been. We have to keep enjoying the best player in the world. It’s a pleasure to play alongside him.”
