Real Madrid and Spain captain Iker Casillas has been left with a swollen face after suffering from a food allergy. Despite the health scare, Casillas made it to the Palacio de los Deportes in Madrid where he participated in a charity match. He was in a good mood and showed his sense of humour to the gathered public. “It seems I’ve fought with Rocky Balboa,” he stated. “I’ve fought with 20 people … No, anything you eat can give you allergies, it happens to many people,” the goalkeeper added jokingly. The World Cup winner has used the holiday vacations to bring out the comical side of his personality. He used December 28, the Day of Innocents, to its full effect. He joined in the festive character of the day and announced on his Facebook page that he will leave Real Madrid in pursuit of outside challenges. “Ending my contract with the club this year just to meet new challenges outside of it. I have lived wonderful moments that I hope to continue in my near future. In the next few hours you tell you more details. Thanks for being there forever!” Casillas’ Facebook status read. Meanwhile, in his recent press appearance, the 30-year old shed his views on Mourinho’s recent statements regarding a return to England. Casillas stated that the Portuguese tactician is a winner who is always planning for the future. He added that Mourinho is a man of his words and always fulfills his obligations. Casillas further reflected that the former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach has two years left on his contract with Real Madrid, which he will surely complete. Los Blancos have had a great start to the 2011/12 season. The Spanish giants have been performing well in all competitions, as they equaled Miguel Munoz’s long established winning record. Real Madrid won fifteen successive matches before failing against Barcelona in El Clasico. Despite the defeat, the Capital club went into the festive season as La Liga leaders with a three-point advantage over Barcelona. Their performances in UEFA Champions League have been impressive as well. Los Blancos finished the group stage winning all six of their fixtures, and will take on the challenge of CSKA Moscow in the knockout rounds. His after being okay: He wrote on his Facebook: 21: 28 hours of Spain. This is me with my face forever! I have recovered my face! Feels good to be yourself again… Young hugs!
