Real Madrid legend Paco Gento insists Iker Casillas will not leave the club.

The club captain has declared he could quit Real if he remains frozen out by coach Carlo Ancelotti ahead of the January market.

"Casillas will stay, he is Madrid and will be with us for many years," said six-time European Cup winner Gento.

He added: "Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the Ballon d'Or. Everyone in Madrid knows this. Ronaldo again, is one of a kind. For me, above Ribéry and Messi."
