#3 Casilla explains Leeds move
Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla has opened up about his decision to move to Leeds United. The Spaniard had lost himself into the abyss following the arrival of Thibaut Courtois and used the January window to get an escape route.
As a result, Casilla is very happy regarding the move and said that he can’t wait to start his Leeds career.
“I am really happy, I want to start a new challenge in English football and I am really keen to start as soon as possible.”
The former Espanyol ‘keeper then revealed his intention to work with Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, stating that he has only heard of positive things on the Argentine.
“I am really pleased to work with Bielsa, I have a lot of information from when he worked in Spain.
“I watched the teams when he worked there and I talked with former players who worked with him and they all told me amazing things about him. I am really happy to work with him.”
After that, he went on to state that his objective is to use his experience and help the Championship side and added that the most important trait for a goalkeeper is to be calm all the time.
“I want to try and help my team with my experience, but always being natural and humble. It is true I can help the team with these kind of things, but it can happen by being natural.
“I like the goalkeepers who stay calm, for me this is the best trait for a goalkeeper to stay calm and this is important in my way of play.”
