Iker Casillas posts a Facebook picture with Cristiano Ronaldo to dispel rumours of a rift
- Updated: September 25, 2012
Last week, questions were asked following Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Manchester City as Iker Casillas remained motionless after Cristiano Ronaldo’s dramatic late winner, as the Bernabeu erupted. (Article and video here.)
For some time, rumours have been swirling that Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo don’t get on and it appeared again on Monday night that the Spanish keeper was none too chuffed when the Portuguese forward scored from the penalty spot to seal a 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano (see video below).
So, just minutes after Real Madrid’s victory over Rayo, Casillas posted a picture on his official Facebook page of him grinning with Ronaldo to confirm all is well between two of the most famous footballers on the planet.
Along with the picture was a link to an article that suggested Casillas and Ronaldo don’t get on, with the comment “Habrá que tomárselo con humor….” – “We have to take it all in humour.”
Presumably we shouldn’t read too much into Casillas’ non-celebration at Rayo.
