CASEMIRO has dethroned Cristiano Ronaldo as Manchester United’s “King of the Gym”.
Both icons have been getting moreÂ bench practice than they hoped this season.
But theyÂ played the whole of Sunday’s 1-0 Premier League win at home to West Ham – showing their strict regime is worth the weight.
It’s claimed Casemiro can leg-press 300kg “with his eyes shut” whereas Ron is known to push 30 reps of 250kg.
And whatever happens on the pitch, it’s certain they’ll go to Qatar honed and toned to perfection.
But Ron reportedly needs to “up his game” as Casemiro’s power has wowed United team-mates since his summer arrival from Real Madrid.
That’s despite five-time BallonÂ d’Or winner Ronaldo being more muscle-bound and an inch tallerÂ than theÂ Â£60million anchorman.
A source told the Daily Star:Â “Ronny takes a lot of pride in his fitness and how muscular his legs are.
“Few get consistently near the amount and weight he can load up.Â
“Heâs not one for bench pressing – Ronny is a legs man.
“But it seems he may have met his match with Casemiro.
“He’s not the biggest guy in the world but he’s as strong as an ox and can push 300kg with his eyes shut.”
