"Casillas is not a Real Madrid standard goalkeeper, what can I say? He's not and never has been. He has been a big failure of ours. The problem is people adore him, love him, talk to him, they defend him so much.
"He is one of the biggest frauds and the other is Raul, the two biggest Real Madrid frauds are first Raul and second Casillas.
He further lambasted other team members in the audio clip saying the stars could not be depended on.
