Real Madrid great Iker Casillas: I don't like modern day football

Real Madrid great Iker Casillas admits he isn't a fan of the modern game.

Casillas was speaking with fellow former Spain goalkeeper Santiago Canizares.

On the Super League project, Casillas said, "I don't know if we should be heading towards a new world, with new challenges. And I don;t know whether people have realised or not that things have to change."

When asked whether he liked modern day football, Casillas gave a blunt reply: "No," and told Cañizares that he loved very second and "really enjoyed" being between the sticks and never suffered.

"How I envy you!" was the ex-Valencia and Spain keeper's response.
