In it, Casillas looked back over his career at Real Madrid and gave his opinion on the Super League project. "I don't know if we should be heading towards a new world, with new challenges. And I don;t know whether people have realised or not that things have to change," the 2010 World Cup winner said.

"How I envy you!" was the ex-Valencia and Spain keeper's response.
