Xavi granted an interview with Jorge Valdano, a former Madrid player who was at one time, the Coach and Sporting Director. Jorge is now a presenter for BeIN Sports.
According to a newspaper report: “The Spanish national team player felt the goalkeeper was given a raw deal by Los Blancos, especially in light of the goalkeeper’s famous call to the midfielder and Carles Puyol after a controversial run of Clasicos and his exile under Jose Mourinho.”
The midfielder who currently plays for Al Saad: “Iker Casillas was misunderstood by Real Madrid.
“Even the call he made for the good of everyone, he was misinterpreted by madridismo [Madrid fans] or rather by ‘mourinhismo’ [referring to Mourinho].
He made some sincere remarks on his former club, Barcelona’s style of play which he said is non-negotiable.
“[On Barca’s style of play], Barca fans no longer understand other ways of playing, only that [Barca] are in control and create 15 or 20 chances per game.
“The fans don’t understand [other styles] anymore. To me, it’s now non-negotiable.”
