No one disagrees that Manchester United's Brazilian star Casemiro is one of the best midfielders in the world and in the history of the game, but this player who has won all the titles with Real Madrid has a sad and inspiring story for his mother.

"His mother was working as a domestic worker 7 days a week after my father left us when I was three years old, I don't remember my father and I don't want to know him," says the Brazil international.

"What I remember very well and am very proud of is that when I received a significant amount of money from football, I took the money and bought a house for my mother, who suffered and struggled to get to where I am now."
