Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has admitted he may have to leave the club.
Casillas has found himself frozen out of La Liga action this season.
â€śOf course I want to play, but you have to respect the Coach. These are his decisions,â€ť Casillas has reflected to reporters today.
â€śThe selfish players always want to play, but a good professional accepts things. Iâ€™d like to stay at Real Madrid because it is what I have dreamed of since childhood.
â€śWhat I must to is train as much as I can in order to play.
â€śPlayers go through times when if they are not a protagonist, many options run through their head. Iâ€™m human, Iâ€™m only a footballer. Iâ€™ve not played for nine months and it has also happened with me. Iâ€™m not a machine.
â€śOf course I want to stay here, win more titles with Real Madrid. Since my childhood I have wanted to be here, but one day I may have to take a decision.
â€śToday my goal is to fight, to try and play every day. If I didnâ€™t want to, I would have gone to the President in September asking to leave, regardless of anything at Christmas. But I have decided I want to be a part of this team for a long time.
â€śBut within three months if the situation doesnâ€™t change and I am asked the same question, maybe the answer is that I am considering leaving.â€ť
