HAPPY BIRTHDAY IKER!! #1
“I always knew that I would reach the first team, ever since I was twelve or thirteen years old. I remember standing on the Castellana Avenue with my father and seeing the Santiago Bernabeu. I thought to myself “one day I’m going to make it. I’m going to play in front of the Bernabeu.” When I used to watch Real Madrid against either Athletic Bilbao or Real Sociedad I knew that one day I would get my chance.” - Iker Casillas
Happy 32nd Birthday Iker Casillas!
“Playing for Real Madrid is like touching the sky. Real Madrid has always been my first choice as a team and Madrid has always been my favorite as a city.” - Juanito
This man is a true hero. He is a true Captain. Look at the way he hugs Cristiano, when Cristiano gets a red card. He doesn’t say anything, simply because he doesn’t need to. He knows what the referee has done, and he knows that there will be no cup. He knows that if Real Madrid had another extra 30 minutes to play, they would not score, simply because luck was not on their side. Look at the way he approaches Sergio. He can not say anything, because he knows that if he says something Sergio will break down and cry. Look at the way he puts his jacket over Benzema. Look at the way he looks at the Madridistas. He knows that they are upset, and disappointed. He knows that they have come a long way to watch them play and win, but that did not happen. Look at the passion in the eyes of this man. All the work he has done is dedicated to this club. It’s dedicated to the fans and to his team mates. He is a winner. He is Madridismo.
