Real Madrid skipper Casillas 'good humoured' over shock axing

Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas remained positive after being axed for victory over Real Betis. Real coach Carlo Ancelotti dropped Casillas for Diego Lopez for the opening game of the new La Liga season.

Marca says Juan Canales, Real's keeper coach, asked Casillas how he was feeling after learning of Ancelotti's decision.

The Real skipper joked: "I'm fine, fine.

"Man, at least now I know I can play in the Bernabeu Trophy."

Real's shadow squad will feature in Thursday's Bernabeu Trophy to honour Raul.
