While talking with boss Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro says he is still getting nervous.

Despite those remaining fears, the duo has formed a tight partnership, with Zidane continually pushing Casemiro to develop as a midfielder.

“I am feeling a little nervous talking to him even today,” Casemiro told The Guardian. “I told him he had no idea what he means for us, for me.”

“Yeah, I’m telling him this: you’ve taken away the ’98 [World Cup] but it didn’t change anything. As I know him now, I can say he deserves it. He is amazing: the humility, the way he presents football. He treats us so lovingly and with such respect.”

“He is really insistent; he always says: ’Case, you should do more: move out of the second line, feed midfielders, move the ball out clean.’”

“Perhaps I’ve had more protagonism with the ball this year, but I still know my job: rob the ball, send it to my co-mates. But Zizou is pesado, hard going: to still talking to me, wanting more.”

“He says: ‘I’m not asking you to do something you can’t do; I’m asking you to do what you can.’ He trusts me a lot.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
