Casillas To Consider Future When Contract Expires

Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, has revealed he is not thinking of leaving the Los Blancos, and believes he can play on until he is 40.

Casillas, who sits on the bench during La Liga games, but features in Copa del Rey and Champions League matches, says he will consider his situation when his contract expires in 2017.

“I can play on until I'm 40,” the 32-year-old said.

“If you look after yourself as a goalkeeper, you can carry on until that age.

“I'd love to be able to keep playing for Real Madrid until I'm 40, but a time will come when that's not possible.

“I'll consider my future at Real when my contract expires".

The Real Madrid captain spent his whole career at the Bernabeu and is keen on adding more trophies to his successful career.

"I'd like to keep winning trophies,” Casillas continued.

"I am an ambitious guy and I always want to play while respecting my fellow team mates.

"It's important to try win back your place in the side, you have to continue fighting and aspire to win more.

“It's amazing to have the chance to win silverware and then go out and enjoy it with the fans on the street. It's a privilege".

Casillas then spoke about the pressure at Real Madrid and revealed that he would like to stay involved in football after finishing his playing career.

"Playing for Real Madrid from such a young age means people are constantly talking about you. And with social media that's even more the case,” he added.

“It's a big responsibility and I try to do things as best I can. You have to try to be calm and collected.

"I'm thinking more and more about what I'll do when I quit playing. I'd like to stay involved in football and help the club, if the circumstances allow it.”
