Iker Casillas spoke about the latest news at Real Madrid today in an interview on Cadena Cope’s radio show El Partido de las Doce. "When you're at the top in world football and when you've won awards for being the best goalkeeper in the world, that means that things are going well". When asked about Cristiano Ronaldo and the comparison with Messi, the White’s captain was blunt: "I’d choose Cristiano because he is a player that has been giving us a lot for several seasons. I know him, I know how he trains and I share time with him every day."
The Whites’ captain analysed the draw against Barcelona and reminded us that Barça are not Real Madrid’s only competition to win the league: "A draw is a draw, I think we were very good. In the first half we deserved more because we created three or four dangerous chances. We drew against a team that, in all probability, will be who we will be fighting against for the league title, but we should not rule out others, such as Atletico Madrid, who have been winning during the first seven matches. There are a lot of matches to play, we’re not in December and we have to make sure that we know that we cannot drop any more points."
Regarding the two goals that Messi scored in the last Clasico and the criticism he received, Casillas said: "When you're at the top in world football and have won awards for being the best goalkeeper in the world sometimes you get criticised and sometimes not. I like it because it means that the job is being done well. Messi’s second goal? I think I could almost have done more for the first. There has been a lot of talk about the celebration a couple of weeks which has surprised me. When I concede a goal I keep it inside and if there was a camera on me for 90 minutes then when there are goals you would be able to see that, for example when Cristiano scored yesterday, my face stays the same and there are no signs of joy."
There was another question about Cristiano Ronaldo and the comparison to Messi for the Whites’ goalkeeper and that the choice between them is clear for him: "I would choose Cristiano, it is clear, because he is a player that really gives us a lot and has been making a difference for us for a few seasons and he is a player that I share time with every day. I know him, I know how he is, I know how he trains, I know what he wants, I know what he wants to achieve and he is really giving his all for us."
Casillas also explained that the most demanding person regarding his performance between the posts is himself: "I hate conceding goals and I am quite self-critical, I spend a lot of time thinking about the goals I concede after matches. You need to keep a cool head and I'm too harsh on myself. I always know that for every goal I could do much more, even if it goes in the corner. I understand that I need to be at my best. You are Casillas and you have to give a little more, but it's something that I don’t worry about. That is the path that I've gone down and you cannot really live like that because memories are short and we should not be looking at the past but should try to live the present and look to future."
