Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos has told former teammate Iker Casillas to fight for his place. Casillas is stuck on the bench at Real due to Diego Lopez's impressive form.

"Iker has always been a starter and I wasn't expecting him to be injured. Neither was I expecting Diego Lopez to return to the club and perform so well," Roberto Carlos told Marca.

"Mourinho is his own man, he has his own way of doing things and you have to respect that.

"Now Iker will have to fight for a spot because nowhere in his contract does it say that he will be in the starting XI for the next forty years."
