Real Madrid captain, Iker Casillas, has revealed that he has always seen Gianluigi Buffon as a role model.
It is no news that Madrid will face Juventus on Tuesday in the first leg of the champions league semifinals. Both iconic shot-stoppers will be at opposite ends of the pitch. This match up has sparked a debate about who will emerge the better number 1.
“Gigi is a reference point for me. Anyone of my generation who dreamt of becoming a goalkeeper had the target of emulating him,” the World Cup winner told Gazzetta dello Sport.
