“I left for the end (such as the decisions), one thing that I wanted to write for a long time. He often says, jokingly, than I never post about him on the blog. And yes, it’s right, but today I had to join the unanimous applause of those days where he has once again demonstrated his values, his strength, his balance, his generosity, his humility, his temperance, his nobility… One of the biggest fortunes in life is to share it with someone you admire in deeply. And I I have this fortune.”
“He dejado para el final (igual que las decisiones) algo que llevo tiempo con ganas de escribir. Él me suele decir bromeando que nunca “lo saco” en el blog. Y sí, tiene razón, pero hoy tenía que sumarme al aplauso unánime de estos días en los que ha vuelto a demostrar sus valores, su fortaleza, su saber estar, su generosidad, su humildad, su templanza, su nobleza… Una de las mayores suertes de la vida es compartirla con alguien a quien admiras profundamente. Yo tengo esa suerte.”
Iker Casillas is no longer the goalkeeper of Real Madrid. It sounds like a joke, right? But unfortunately it’s true. It’s difficult to say anything, but I think that he deserves a few sentences more. When I started to be a fan of Real Madrid, Iker was already there. I knew that this sad moment would come, but I didn’t think that so quickly. To be honest, until the last minute I didn’t believe in it. I still don’t believe it … I know that Real Madrid needs a new, young goalkeeper. Everyone knew that someday someone must replace Iker. He’s no longer the same goalkeeper as before, but he is still one of the best! We have Keylor, but some of you certainly know that Real Madrid was interested in David De Gea even when he played for Atletico Madrid. I don’t know if Real Madrid and Manchester United come to an agreement … but now it seems more likely than before. But I was sure that Iker was stay, even as a reserve goalkeeper … to help, give support and a lots of advice … and of course take advantage of his chances. Unfortunately, I have to say goodbye to him and his family. Iker, Sara and Martin were the most popular family on my blog. It will be weird not to publish photos with Sara or lovely Martin :( There were so many great moments with them. When Iker told that he would be a daddy, or when Sara was in the hospital - on Tumblr was madness as if the king had come into the world :D Or when Iker took Martin to the pitch during celebration of La Decima. When he began to cry, and the team began to calm him down. You know … nanny Sergio :D etc. I would like to wish Iker and his family all the best, because they deserve it. They always will belong to Real Madrid Family.
Thank you Iker for all the wonderful moments, a lot of trophies, for being the best captain in the world. It’s an honor to have something in common with you … being a Madridista. Raúl promised us that he would return someday, maybe not as a player, but he comes back. You too, right? Gracias por todo!
