Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas broke his previous record of 518 minutes without conceding a goal, a record that is still continuing after helping his side to a 0-1 Copa del Rey quaterfinal win over Espanyol and admitted that he sees himself staying on at his boyhood club next season.
In his post-match interview, Casillas spoke about the match, the record and his future.
“Hopefully this run continues. With the players we have and the chances we create, leaving a clean sheet is a vital part in picking up victories in all competitions.
“I’m happy, I didn’t think that much about this record, but you guys (media) did. I’ve broken a personal and team record for not conceding goals.
“I’m tired of talking about my situation. What’s important is that the fans enjoy the players that the manager is putting out in every competition, every week and that’s it. What I need to do is work as hard as I can for me and then for the team and enjoy it when I play, because that’ always a pleasure.
“Yes, I see myself playing with Real Madrid next year. I need to enjoy myself, because as the manager said, we are in three competitions. Last season was very difficult for us. Right now I hope that in April we are dependant upon ourselves.”
