Juventus keeper Buffon praises Casillas for handling Real Madrid axing

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has praised Iker Casillas for the way he's handled being benched at Real Madrid.

Juve face Real in the Champions League this week.

"I admire Iker a lot, and even more so now with everything that is going on. Casillas' reaction to it all as a man is just fantastic and I believe that he is now even greater than before," said Buffon.

"It's odd having to see him on the bench, but you also have to fully respect Diego López, who is a phenomenal goalkeeper."
