Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti understands Iker Casillas' frustrations. Casillas has spoken about leaving Real in January.

"I have not spoken with him about this. He is a great goalkeeper and a great professional. He is behaving in a very serious and professional manner. He is a captain; what more can I say. I hope that he stays with us because he is an important player for the atmosphere of the squad.

"We have to speak to him because it is fair to know what is happening. He has said nothing to me and he seems calm. It is understandable that he wants to play," said Ancelotti.
