Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ruing veteran goalkeeper, Iker Casillas’s exit from the club in July. Albeit, he admitted that he was not forcibly dismissed from the club, Perez revealed that his farewell was not handled the right way.
Recall that the Spanish footballer who signed for Porto two months ago alone attended a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu on July 12 where he read a statement in tears, and then bade farewell to fans at the pitch
“The dismissal of Casillas was not good, but it was because he wanted to. The mistake is mine and so I called him that afternoon, I spoke with him and delayed his departure for the next day to do it the right way.” I was in a difficult emotional position, he did not want to do anything, he asked us for one thing and it went wrong. I consider myself guilty. We did what he asked for and on the next day we did what had to be done. I was wrong,” Perez added.
