Many Ronaldo & Messi fans would disagree with us on this.
SoccerSouls Player of the Season award goes to “Iker Casillas”
Reasons why we crowned him with this prestigious award ahead of Ronaldo , Messi, Pirlo and others:
- Captained Real Madrid & Spain to glory in La Liga and Euro 2012 respectively.
- Consistent performance throughout the season.
- Important saves like one against xavi against Barcelona, penalty save against Portugal and many more.
Winning La Liga and Euro 2012 as a captain.
Semifinal defeat against Bayern Munich.
Defenders & Goal Keepers deserves awards too!
It is very sad to say that defenders and goal keepers are over looked when the awards and spotlights are concerned. Football is after all a team game in which defense plays a crucial part in each and every match. We mostly go for attackers because of their flair and skills are good to watch so that we forget the hard working goal keepers and defenders.
Casillas may or may not win ballon d’or but we are proud and happy to give the award to one of the consistent goal keepers of last decade.
Post your comments below if you guys disagree or support our decision. We will leave you guys with a fun fact about Iker Casillas,
Casillas is superstitious and touches his crossbar every time Real Madrid scores.
