Iker Casillas dropped for final match


Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has been dropped from the squad altogether for the side’s final match of the season against Osasuna in what appears to be a last act of defiance by Jose Mourinho.

The outgoing manager controversially dropped the World Cup winner in January in favour of Diego Lopez – causing much anger among the fans.

With Lopez missing the final game of the campaign through injury, it was expected Mourinho would finally hand Casillas a recall.

Instead he has left him out of the squad completely, meaning 26-year-old Antonio Adan will likely start with 24-year-old B-team keeper Jesus Fernandez taking his place on the bench.

A number of other high profile players have not been named in the squad, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao, Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira and Marcelo.
