Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas is all set to return to the club in an advisory role.
He will be a close aide of club president Florentino Perez.
Casillas is one of Real Madrid’s icons from the modern generation and his return to the club will certainly delight the fans.
Apart from his quality as a player, Casillas seems like a good footballing brain and his appointment could help Real Madrid grow off the pitch.
It will be interesting to see what the new role holds for him. The role is expected to be defined in the coming weeks.
Zinedine Zidane had a similar role before his transition into management. The Frenchman has been the best manager in the world since then.
Recently, he guided the Spanish giants to their 34th league title.
Casillas will be hoping to make a similar impact on his return, even if it’s off the pitch.
The Spaniard left the club five years ago to play regular football at Porto and he is prepared to call time on his playing career now.
It will be interesting to see if the Spaniard manages to succeed in his new role next season. Casillas has won several trophies as a player including the World Cup and the coveted La Decima with Real Madrid.
As for Real Madrid, they will now be hoping to do well in the upcoming Champions League games. They have a tough away outing against Premier League giants Manchester City.
