Iker Casillas says he "suffered" when frozen out at Real Madrid last season. Casillas was benched by former Real coach Jose Mourinho, who has since moved to Chelsea.

"I thought about the team, what is best for Real Madrid ... I cried, I suffered, I've asked what went wrong, I've had bad nights sleeping little and soul searching ... I am a Madridista, and above all, for me, before coaches, presidents, athletic directors, is the club.

"I would love to retire at Real Madrid, but I will put no impediment if tomorrow a coach does not want me."
