Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas recently discussed how when Vicente Del Bosque left Real Madrid a piece of the club left with him and doesn’t understand why the current Spanish national team coach was forced out in the first place.

In the prologue for the new book titled, “Vicente, an authorised biography”, Casillas spoke about his feelings when Del Bosque left the club in 2003 and what he’s learned from one of the best managers in the world of football.

“[In 2003] we had a great team and everything was going well. With the group we had you could argue that anyone could have managed us, but in four years we won two Champions League titles, La Liga and one Intercontinental…One night, I was one my way to Alicante, when I learned that Del Bosque had left the club. We were aware there was something. The celebration of winning La Liga was the worst I can remember. His departure from Real Madrid hurt, it was like losing a part of the club.”

Casillas went on to add that Del Bosque taught him lessons he’ll never forget, like humility, when he dropped him as a starter in favour of Cesar.

“He helped me, but also made me see the reality of football, the sport and life. He gave me confidence and then, later, a long while on the bench. At first I was annoyed because no player understands why he’s dropped from the starting XI. After several weeks, I finally understood and when I got the opportunity I showed he could confide in me, like the final in Glasgow.”

Casillas was finally reunited with Del Bosque with the Spanish national team.

“He taught me to how live with winning and to respect your friends as much as someone wants to make your believe that they are your worst of enemies. He’s maintained the calm in the difficult moments as well moments of joy after winning the Cup. He’s helped the footballers and the fans.”

lmao Iker is like "Xabi not again, you stupid ginger turtle, NOT AGAIN"

Imagine if Iker had started the league games, we probably would not have conceded some of the easy goals we have conceded this season

Hope we go through to the final so that he can finally get his League spot back

Time goes fast. It feels like the match against Leverkusen was yesterday.

Iker Casillas says he has learned from a poor spell of form but insists he has been through worse periods in his career than his current slump.

The Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper has come in for criticism after a mistake in the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid was followed up with a disastrous World Cup for Spain.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Uefa Super Cup tie against Sevilla in Cardiff, the 33-year-old said he was confident of a successful season and had analysed his recent mistakes.

"I haven't been at my best in the last few games for Real Madrid and Spain, but I have analysed and learned from them," he told reporters.

"I have been through worse moments in my career. You go through good moments and bad moments. Everything is temporary. I have not been at the level I was when maybe people became spoiled.

"You have to grin and bear it and face up to situations like this. I have always done so and I am not going to hide now.

"I understand that when you play for Real Madrid you are always being watched and your name is talked about when things are good and when they are bad. Luckily, in my case it has almost always been when things are good.

"I don't feel targeted. The club has treated me very well, I have no complaints. I want to push myself even harder than last year."

Casillas said Carlo Ancelotti’s side were determined to continue picking up silverware after winning the Champions League and Copa del Rey last season, starting with the battle against Europa League winners Sevilla.

He continued: "I'm excited about getting back to winning. We can't live on the memory of what we did a few months ago. We have to win the Super Cup to gain confidence and then go for the Spanish Super Cup as well.

"This is an important game for Madrid after the prize of winning la Decima. It is a day to be enjoyed and to win. At Real Madrid we are obliged to win and to go for the trophy."

Madrid have signed Keylor Navas from Levante this summer to provide competition to Casillas, while Diego Lopez is on the brink of leaving to join AC Milan.

He'll most likely be the starting GK this year, so hopefully he gets back to his best. He made that mistake in the CL final and at the WC Cup he wasn't at his best, but then again nor was the entire Spain team. Anyway last season he did well whenever he played, so hopefully he gets back to top form.

Am I the only one who thinks that Keylor will be the starter this season ? Considering Carlo's last comments.

There is a thick line between being a legend and a villain; casillas' line has lost much of its thickness and what is left is so thin that it could cut off any time soon.
I think casillas is a selfish player who puts himself ahead of his team.
Puyol, Villa, Xabi and xavi realized that their legs and prolly their style of play were of no good to the spanish national team anymore and they decided to retire to their personal detriment, but for the greater good of the national team.
As for Casillas, he just won't retire.
He has been selected over and over again out of sentiments and he keeps dissapointing. I think he is being selfish by still being in the national team because he wants to vindicate himself.
I believe Del Bosque would eventually lose his patience and put the best interest of the team ahead of casillas' own.
Del Bosque benched him in the friendly against france and I hope it continues.
I hope benching him is also part of the change Ancelotti intends to implement.
The sentiments have to stop - he is a legend, has saved our ass many times but he is no good for d national team and madrid any more.
I would neva forget his mistake during d CL final and how he made the same mistake again, how he had made that same mistake before the CL and how he kept making the mistake even after.
He should know when enough is enough and bow out gracefully like the other veterans before he disgraces himself.if he spends more than a season as the first choice goal keeper, he would start getting hated.
He would find himself on the bench more often and sooner or later, he wouldn't even be called up to the national team.
He should accept the obvious - what all his coaches and fans see...he has lost it..
Retire! Iker! Retire a legend or retire a villain

I heard there were boos today as well for Casillas. Guy deserves more respect - no matter his current form - He has been there for them for 15 yrs and won everything. This is the part I hate most about Madrid - lack of respect.

Iker finally opens up about the dumb "mole" taunts (imo not that he needed to, knuckleheads will always be knuckleheads) http://www.marca.com/en/2014/10/07/en/football/real_madrid/1412633148.html?a=1b38cd893bcda68b384dad9ba1110de1&t=1412655352

Of course he would say that he isn't the mole lmao

In any case I don't think anyone can doubt Iker's commitment to Real Madrid. Having said that him saying that he doesn't need to go to the gym doesn't fill me with confidence lol

Most of the Bernabeu are Socios who pay a lot of money to be members of the club. If they want to spend 90 minutes booing Iker then they are free to do just that.

Cristiano used to get booed by the crowd too, now we hear "Cristiano Balon D'Oro almost every home game". If you play well and work hard the Bernabeu will show you their appreciation. If not then they will let you know lol

True. Also if Iker choose to zip it then why open it now?

I've just watched a video of him from a few years ago and I must say that he was unplayable at his best. Never seen anything like him. Best example of how the mighty have fallen
