Iker Casillas has endured a difficult week after being overlooked for Diego López for Real Madrid’s La Liga opener against Real Betis.
Now, the Spain captain has taken to Facebook to send a message of warmth to the Madrid fans. “I want to thank this great support for always being there and for giving us your support during all this time,” Casillas posted on the social networking site.
The goalkeeper also reminded supporters that the players will be sporting special shirt numbers bearing fans’ photos in Thursday’s Trofeo Bernabéu against Al-Sadd. He commented: “Today we’ll take to the field with the photos of our supporters on the shirt. Now, more than ever, we’re united.”
