Spain coach Vincente del Bosque expects Iker Casillas to be reinstalled as Real Madrid's No1 this season.

Del Bosque is confident new Real coach Carlo Ancelotti will back the club captain.

"Iker feels wanted again and feels like a footballer again," he said.

"I can tell he feels happier, and the longer he was with the team, the better he felt. Being with the team raised his spirits."
