The legendary Goalkeeper of Real Madrid, Iker Casillas, said he “isn’t prepared to give up” against Borussia Dortmund in spite of the unexpected defeat (4-1) in the semifinals of the Champions League on Wednesday.
Casillas who was speaking to the Spanish leading sports newspaper MARCA added that anything could happen in 90 minutes.
“We’ve got to go out there and give your all on the pitch to go through to the final at Wembley. The team will do everything it can on the pitch to turn the tie around. We’re upset and I can understand that our fans are disappointed.”
Iker has been kept on the bench by coach Mourinho and been replaced by the former Villareal Goalkeeper Diego Lopez since he had a bone fracture on his right hand.
Referring to his current situation Cassilas said:
“I’m fine and training’s going brilliantly. I’m helping the team every way I can, it’s a different experience for me but what the team needs right now is support.”
“Whoever is chosen to play has to give their all, both for themselves and for the team. You try to carry on like normal, just get on with training…but one way or another you have to support and advise people at the club and wait for your chance.” He added.
Real Madrid collapsed in front of Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday following a super hatrick by the Germans’ forward Lewandowski.
