Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has backed the clause that prevents Esteban Granero and Ruben de la Red from facing them today for Getafe.

Casillas said: "I think the device is correct. In the interests of Madrid, if Granero is still our player, then it doesn't make sense for him to be in a situation that could harm us.

"We've been on the opposite side, like when Fernando Morientes was playing for Monaco, or Pedro Munitis at Racing Santander."
