Iker Casillas has been one of the best goalkeepers to have played the game of football.
A youth product from Real Madrid’s academy, he has been instrumental in so many of their successes in his time with the club.
The Spaniard suffered a heart attack while at Porto and eventually retired this year as he wanted to become the President of the Spanish Football Federation
While he may not have gotten the farewell he deserved when he left Real Madrid, he is a hero in the eyes of the Los Blancos supporters.
But, his time at Real coincided with arch-rivals Barcelona’s golden generation.
Barca have been extremely successful in the last two decades, winning all that was available to win.
They dominated Real during their battles in the El Clasico, especially on their home turf.
Hence, when the Real Madrid legend uploaded a photo of himself playing at the Camp Nou on Instagram, his compatriot and Barca captain, Gerard Pique, decided to poke fun at his expense.
🗣️ — Piqué replying to Iker Casillas via Insta: “All the times you’ve picked the ball from the back of the net in that stadium… What a way to lose!” pic.twitter.com/SV1rzUKbEx— Barça Universal (@BarcaUniversal) May 14, 2020
Pique reminded Casillas about all the times he picked the ball out of the net at that stadium.
Fellow Barcelona legend, Carles Puyol, also added to the banter, asking Casillas if he played alone.
