Iker Casillas says he is looking for a similar result in this season’s Champions League final to the one in Lisbon in 2014.
The former Real Madrid goalkeeper was a member of the team that won European football’s premier competition when Los Blancos defeated cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Portuguese capital, and has declared his wish to see them lift the trophy when the teams meet again in Milan on May 28.
“Hopefully we’ll see a repeat of the final in Lisbon. Let’s see if the season ends well for Madrid. If they can’t win La Liga then I hope they win the Champions League,” said Casillas, who feels a lot of the credit for the improvement in form is because of Coach Zinedine Zidane’s influence.
“This is a Real Madrid side that few people believed in just a couple of months ago. It’s clear a big part of the turnaround has been down to the Head Coach.”
Casillas departed the Santiago Bernabeu under a cloud when he left for Porto before the start of this season, and the Spain international maintains he may reveal all sometime in the future.
“One day I’ll explain my departure from Madrid. I prefer not to talk about it in the media, but if one day I decide to talk about it properly then I’ll write it in a book,” he concluded.
