El Clasico, La Liga, Sports

Iker Casillas calls for an El Clasico charity match when football returns.

Real Madrid and Spain legend Iker Casillas has suggested that a ‘vintage’ El Clásico be arranged with former players of the two clubs, as soon as the coronavirus nightmare ends, and funds raised will be donated to charity. Wouldn’t that be beautiful?

The World Cup winning captain who made his debut with Los Blancos in 1999 to become the youngest keeper to have played in the Champions League, and to have won the competition later that season suffered a heart attack during a training session with Porto in 2019 and retired in February this year.

He played 16 seasons for the Real Madrid first team, making 725 appearances, and won five La Liga titles and three Champions League titles.

I am certain the football world is up for this and we certainly can’t wait for it.
