Real Madrid legend Casillas to challenge for RFEF presidency

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas is ready to challenge for the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) presidency.

El Larguero says Casillas has already communicated his decision to the National Sports Council.

He will be Luis Rubiales' rival in the next presidential elections.

In a poll conducted by MARCA, 94 percent of the fans showed their support for Casillas' hypothetical candidacy.

The 38-year-old Porto goalkeeper has already met with several of his former national team colleagues to ask them to assist him in the elections.
