Montanier Wants CR7 In Goal

Real Sociedad coach Philippe Montanier has joked that he hopes Real Madrid will opt to use Cristiano Ronaldo in goal when the two sides clash in the league on Sunday.

The 48-year-old was having a jab at Jose Mourinho's recent decision to drop Iker Casillas in their defeat to Malaga, and Montanier says that he would be pleased if Casillas and Ronaldo swapped places.

"I hope they play with Cristiano Ronaldo in goal and Iker Casillas on the right wing!” Montanier joked at a press conference, before getting a little more serious.

"We are seven games unbeaten, but let's not forget that they (Real Madrid) have won six and drawn two at the Bernabeu, with an average of three goals scored.

"It will be a difficult but exciting challenge."
