REAL MADRID 3 - 2 VALENCIA

Real Madrid stop Casilla from replying to a reporter in Catalan

The club's press department impeded the Tarragona-born goalkeeper from replying to a question in Catalan.

Players from Real Madrid and Valencia attended reporters in the Mixed Zone after today's Week 37 meeting at the Bernabéu. One of the players who stopped to talk to the press was Kike Casilla - born in Tarragona and a Catalan speaker. When a reporter put a question to the keeper in Catalan, Casilla turned to a press officer standing next to him to make sure it was ok to answer the question. "Catalan? In Catalan?" he asked, before turning back to the reporter and saying, "No, in Spanish".
