Madrid Press: Iker Casillas to return to line up


The Madrid press once again focuses on the goalkeeping situation this morning – a subject that has rumbled on for many months now.

AS goes with quotes from Iker Casillas on the its front page this morning congratulating Keylor Navas on making his debut midweek. The Costa Rican made his home league debut for the club as Los Blancos ran out 5-1 winners over Elche.

But Marca says the club captain will take his place back in the team for this weekend’s trip to Villarreal. According to the paper, boss Carlo Ancelotti has told the 33-year-old he will resume his place, despite having conceded eight goals in his first four games of the season.

Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo is setting records off the pitch as well as on it. The 29-year-old has netted seven times in his last two games and is one hat trick short of equaling the club record 26. But there was more good news for him this week as he became the first sportsman to reach 30 million followers on Twitter.

According to data published in AS, Ronaldo reached that figure on the social media site this week. He is streets ahead of the second most popular sportsman, former Real star Kaka, who has 20.5 million followers.
