Gatti's "horrendous" jibe carries no weight with Real Madrid's Casillas

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has shrugged off amazing criticism from former Argentina keeper Hugo Gatti.

Former Boca Juniors No1 Gatti is no fan of Casillas and rapped during the week: "At present he can be the best in the world and that is in spite of him being a horrendous goalkeeper. He does not know the ABC of the arc and never catches the ball.

"What happens is that he makes an important save in a game which means the team win and then has the positive repercussions."

Asked about the attack, Casillas coolly stated: "Sometimes I would reply to these things, but if I did, I know I'd regret it quickly."
