Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe, Lyon’s 22-year-old central midfielder Bruno Guimarães was asked about comparisons made in his native Brazil about him to Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro.
“I am not his rival, but I am competition. We are talking about a truly great player here. Casemiro has achieved so many things in Europe, he has won so much, whilst I am merely just starting out. I am here to leave my mark on Lyon, win titles and obtain the stature of a great player.”
