‘No room for Lopez at Madrid’

Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has backed the club’s decision to sell Diego Lopez.

The ex-Sevilla man was Los Blancos’ goalkeeper throughout the League campaign last time out, but was deemed surplus to requirements this summer following the arrival of Keylor Navas.

And the Polish shot-stopper has insisted that it was the right decision to opt for Iker Casillas over Lopez.

“It’s lucky for Madrid to have two such great goalkeepers,” he told AS.

“Diego Lopez went to Milan because there is space for two good goalkeepers, but not three.

“I think it’s very positive to rely on two goalkeepers of the high level. Keylor had a great World Cup and gained a lot of confidence.

“That is good for Madrid.”
