Legendary Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has posted a compilation of his own mistakes over the years in a show of support to the under-fire Loris Karius.
Well, this is certainly unprecedented.
Loris Karius’ stock may never be fully replenished following his pair of costly errors in last season’s Champions League final between his Liverpool side and Real Madrid – concussion or not.
It does appear as though he has become a laughing stock within the footballing world – and some sloppy errors made in this campaign’s pre-season have not helped him at all.
In a show of solidarity to the young keeper, the former Real Madrid icon Iker Casillas posted a highlight-reel of his own errors to his official Twitter with the following message (translated from Spanish) in accompaniment:
“Behind each one of us, there is a person. Raise your hand he who has not failed at some time. Learning from our mistakes will make us stronger and accepting them more human.”
Detrás de cada uno de nosotros, hay una persona. Que levante la mano quien no haya fallado alguna vez. Aprender de nuestros errores nos hará más fuertes y aceptarlos más humanos. #yotambienfallo pic.twitter.com/jwLOdicfTh
