Cesar has sympathy for Iker
Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar can empathise with his Spain counterpart Iker Casillas after both had to endure "difficult moments" in the last year. The QPR stopper and Casillas played in the Confederations Cup final on Sunday and after the game swapped shirts. Julio Cesar, who won the Golden Glove for conceding the fewest goals in the tournament, collected the trophy wearing Casillas' shirt and said it was his tribute to his opposite number.
“It was an honour for me to swap shirts with Casillas, because I respect him a lot and I've always admired him,”
Casillas was sidelined for the final four months of the league season with Real Madrid, after injuring his hand and then losing his place in the first team to Diego Lopez. "It was an honour for me to swap shirts with Casillas, because I respect him a lot and I've always admired him," Julio Cesar, who was relegated with QPR, told Marca.
“I'm very upset that he had such a hard season, because I know how he feels, and I'm delighted we both were able to play in the final,”
"I was out on the pitch celebrating and someone told me that Iker wanted to speak to me. That made me very happy, and we spoke for 10 minutes.
"I had never met him before in person, as this was the first time we'd played against each other, and I can say that he is a great person, an excellent lad.
