Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: Iker Casillas Ecstatic After Copa Del Rey Victory
It's been a rough couple of years for Iker Casillas and his Real Madrid side when it comes to facing Barcelona for the past couple of years.
The 29-year-old Casillas, already in his 12th year at the Bernabéu, helped Madrid win the Copa del Rey with a 1-0 victory over Barcelona on Wednesday. In a La Liga match on April 16, Madrid tied Barcelona 1-1 to secure the side's first points against Barcelona since Pep Guardiola took over at the Camp Nou in the 2008-09 season.
So naturally Casillas was delighted that his side were finally able to solve the Barcelona hex.
He told assembled reporters after the win:
"Today, we have suffered badly, but we have won a trophy that's coveted by all Madrid fans.
"We thank them for their support and we can repay them now that we have finally won a trophy. I am very happy.
“Our mentality has been changed. (Mourinho) is a phenomenon. We know that the league is complicated but we must always fight for everything.
“Now we have a Champions League semi-final to look forward to.”
