The End of An Era: Iker Casillas Retires

4 Aug

Yes, I have briefly crawled out from my rock and I hope to soon explain where I have been but for today, it’s all about Iker. Our beloved former Capi called time on a beautiful career. He will always be an icon for Madridistas. I miss his grandpa sweaters, copious tears, pre-game besos and the way he loved Real Madrid so damn much. We were lucky to have him. RM made an official statement full of love (I am side eyeing them a bit, though) and shared a great video – almost 8 minutes of Iker doing what he did best: saves, glorious saves.

Thank you, Iker. We love you.

    Hey, Lozil! How ya been? This post made me realize that I have been following Real Madrid for 10 years, and only stopped because of the pandemic. Well, also bec the only one left to watch is Capi Sese and he’s gotten boring. But the past decade has been fun, especially the early years — and much of that is due to the watshtas and our weird stalker jokes! Thank you ladies! I hope you are all healthy and safe! Hala Madrid! — Jellyace

    He was a glorious keeper. I hope he enjoys retirement to the fullest.
