Casillas: Real Madrid should recall Middlesbrough’s Woodgate

He said: “I don’t know anything about it, but it is a shame because in the short time he was with us in Madrid he suffered injuries.

“But he still showed the club his qualities and was starting to get his form back.

“He’s a great player, one of the best, and it’s always a shame to lose great players like him.

“But I’m sure he’ll do well wherever he goes.”
