Iker Casillas Expertly Trolls Newspaper For False Reports About Him

Iker Casillas Expertly Trolls Newspaper For False Reports About Him

Last week, a report surfaced in Portuguese newspaper O Jogo claiming that former Spain captain Iker Casillas had been dropped by Porto for his poor attitude and for using his mobile phone too much. It would appear that this is not the case, however, as Casillas' response to the story has proved.

First of all, here's a reminder of the extract from O Jogo explaining his exclusion.

"Mobile phones are not prohibited in the team camp. However there are particular times allocated for their use. Iker's 'constant' use of his own mobile device is one of the reasons given for him losing his place.

The manager, Sergio Conceiçao, likes the team to be tight and does not appreciate that internal situations are spread across social networks. It is known that Casillas has made use of his mobile phone, even when the team was in camp, to the point that he has been warned by the goalkeeping coach."

Porto manager Sergio Conceicao defended his decision to drop the ex-Real Madrid stopper. "I put out the 11 players I thought were best suited for tonight's game," he said via ESPN.

"I wouldn't change the decision if I had a chance to make it again. I'm paid to make decisions and tonight I put out, what I felt, was my strongest side.

Casillas, however, has since seen the story featured in Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo and took it upon himself to say something about the report.

Translated from Spanish, Casillas' tweet reads, "4,76,98,6,35,74,65...Line! We check... the line is not correct!"

Well played, Iker. Well played. Although I'm guessing he sent the tweet off his phone which may actually prove O Jogo's report to be correct.
