Tata Martino declares after the game that he heard that Pepe or Ramos was going to be CM, and thus he decided to change his starting line-up.

At 15:50, Manu Carreño reveals the starting line up. Including that Sergio Ramos will be CM.

At 16:00, Fernando Burgos announces the starting line-up, including that Sergio Ramos will be a CM.

These two are well-known intimate friends of Carbonero (Carreño) and Casillas (Burgos). Does that mean that Iker/Sara leaked the starting line-up? Not necessarily. Does it merit an investigation? Absolutely.

headsupgirl:

The difference between Iker Casillas and a person working in a company for 20 years is that if that person says they’ll leave in 3 months if the situation won’t change, the management will kick them out without any benefits and no other company will want them and they have kids to feed and bills to pay.

I wonder, in the real world, do people think that a person can live off of his/her past accomplishments?

See the differences?

Don’t YOU see the differences? Diego play every week, Iker play only once in a month, so don’t you dare to say, that he must end his career as second goolkeeper! When Capello choose Iker over Diego - what Lopez do? Right, he signed for Villarreal CF.

Capello didn’t choose Iker. Capello had it clear that his goalie was Diego López, who reminded him of Illgner. Capello was strongly advised by the RM directors and our worst president Ramon Calderon (“if I didn’t renew Iker’s contract, I would’ve been out of RM”) to not relegate Iker to the bench because he was “untouchable”.

I don’t care how people want to spin it. Diego left because, even though the coach wanted him as the first goalkeeper, the directors and president wouldn’t let it happen. If Iker leaves, it’s because he’s no longer “untouchable”. Furthermore, Iker is going around publicly stating that, if in three months he’s still in the current situation, he will consider leaving. That little phrase will put a lot of people under pressure, since, essentially, Iker is hinting at an ultimatum.

Casillas has just publicly admitted that this season he has more “desire” than last year’s to train hard than last years. That he felt that, as captain, it was better to stay silent than to speak up. That if he doesn’t play in 3 months, he’ll consider leaving.
