After a World Cup to forget and a far from brilliant pre-season, Iker Casillas is going through a bit of a crisis of confidence.
With the arrival of Keylor Navas this summer, ‘San Iker’ is under more pressure than ever to retain his Number 1 status at La Casa Blanca.
After last night’s Super Cup Final, Ronaldo gave Casillas a much-needed pick-me-up, telling the journos:
‘For me Casillas never stopped being one of the best keepers in the world.
He’s on the level of (Keylor) Navas, Buffon, Cech…he’s a top keeper.’
Casillas had just called him the best player in the world on Instagram to be fair, so Cristiano probably owed him one.
