Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has revealed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez calls Real Madrid midfielders – Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric – ‘the three tenors’.

Florentino Perez affectionately named the midfielders after a trio of famous Spanish opera singers.

Casemiro told AS: “Florentino calls us ‘The Three Tenors’. [Toni] Kroos, [Luka] Modric and I have earned the right to be remembered for many years.”

After leading AC Milan to Champions League success in 2003 and 2007 as well as lifting the trophy with Madrid in 2014 and this year, Carlo Ancelotti is the most successful manager in the history of the competition.

“Ancelotti is an example in everything. Everything good that happens to him, he deserves it,” Casemiro added.
