Iker Casillas cut a forlorn and frustrated figure on Real Madrid bench at Celta Vigo [Video]
After 10 years as Real Madrid’s undisputed Number 1, Iker Casillas will never get used to squad rotation.
Even if Carlo Ancelotti has maintained his rotation stance since the start of the season, Casillas possibly felt, and feels, that he should now be reinstalled to the number 1 spot, as he’s the keeper for the Champions League final.
But Ancelotti decided on a Solomonian pact: 2 Liga games each for Casillas and Diego Lopez.
So with Casillas relegated to the bench at Celta Vigo last Sunday, he cut a forlorn and frustrated figure as he watched his side slump to a 2-0 defeat.
Casillas warmed up with his hands in his pockets, and didn’t even put his gloves on; and barely feigned interest in the game itself.
As soon as the final whistle blew, Casillas was the first one straight down the tunnel.
