Casillas to consider leaving Real Madrid

Oct 17 2013, 4:24pm CDT | by IANS

Madrid, Oct 18 (IANS) Real Madrid and Spain captain, Iker Casillas admitted Thursday that if his situation at his club did not change in the next three months he would consider leaving.

Madrid, Oct 18 — Real Madrid and Spain captain, Iker Casillas admitted Thursday that if his situation at his club did not change in the next three months he would consider leaving.

Although he is first choice in goal for Real Madrid in the Champions League, Casillas has been reduced to substitute by coach Carlo Ancelotti, who has preferred Diego Lopez in goal for the club's domestic BBVA Primera Liga games, Xinhua reported.

Casillas' lack of first team action also saw him lose the Spain jersey for Spain's World Cup qualifying game at home to Belarus last Friday and although he returned against Georgia Tuesday, that is a clear warning to the goalkeeper that unless he is playing regularly then his place at the World Cup is at risk.

Perhaps it is that threat which prompted Casillas to speak at a promotional event in Madrid Thursday afternoon, when he was honest about his future.

"If the situation doesn't change in three months, I will ask myself the question and maybe the answer will be that I am thinking about leaving," said Casillas, who added that his wish was to stay at the club for "a very long time."

"Players have moments when they lose protagonism or enjoying the game and they think about taking a decision.

"I am a human being and a footballer and I have not played for nine months, so it also happens to me. I want to be here and to carry on winning titles for Real Madrid, but there will come a day when maybe I have to take a decision."

"As things stand now, my objective is to fight for a place as I have done all of these days. I had not been clear about my future, I would have said to the club president (Florentino Perez) that I wanted to leave and that whatever happened, I wanted to leave at Christmas," he added.

However, the goalkeeper didn't want to blame Ancelotti for leaving him out of the side. "They are decisions a coach has to make. There are 24 players in the squad and all of them want to play," he said, commenting that, "the club is more important than the individual player."

Paris Saint-Germain are ready to test Jose Mourinho's willingness to keep Petr Cech at Chelsea, according to Rob Draper of the Daily Mail. The veteran goalkeeper is yet to start a game this season and has been forced to watch on as Thibaut Courtois beds himself in as the No. 1. Although this has always been coming—Courtois' performances across three season-long loan spells with Atletico Madrid established the Belgian as one of football's best young stoppers—Cech's demise h ...

Liverpool Transfer News: Reds Must Keep Daniel Agger in Their Squad

Aug 27 2014 3:08pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It’s always the same story for Liverpool in the transfer window—overly keen to say hello, reluctant to say goodbye. The Reds have brought a wealth of talent to Anfield over the summer but, Iago Aspas aside, haven’t parted with any household names for 2014/15. The likes of Fabio Borini, Oussama Assaidi and Sebastian Coates, who aren’t likely to be a part of manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans this season, are no closer to the exit door. However, one star that the Reds must keep in their ranks i ...

Do Arsenal Have a Goalkeeper Problem to Solve?

Aug 24 2014 6:49am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There is a new trend emerging in European football. Top clubs have started stockpiling goalkeepers. It is now not enough to have just one senior shot-stopper. Elite teams prefer to have two. The trend began in earnest with Real Madrid splitting goalkeeping duties between Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas. Although Lopez has since moved on to AC Milan, he has been replaced with another highly-rated keeper: Co ...
