Spain and Real Madrid captain has been opted as a next Ballon d’Or winner by many legends but he thinks goalkeepers are not well appreciated in this type of awards.
Casillas captained the Euro winner Spain and La Liga winner Real Madrid last season and he has been highlighted by Media, Fans and the Pundits as a next Best Player Award in the world but Casillas revealed he is not giving focus in the individual honours. Casillas can be a second goal keeper to win the famous Ballon D’Or after Lev Yashin of Soviet Union in 1971.
Talking with the Sport La Roja Captain told.” The Ballon d’Or should be won by the player most deserving, Now they say that I can win it, but it’s not something that I obsess over. Clearly, goalkeepers are not well appreciated in this type of awards, but I think we have the same right to win the Ballon d’Or as any of the other players take the field in every game.”
Casillas added.” Yashin has won the Ballon d’Or previously; why not another keeper ?
