'Casillas is the pride of Real Madrid' - Del Bosque
December 24, 2012, 20:52 GMT
Iker Casillas is the "pride of Real Madrid", according to Spain boss and former Blancos coach Vicente del Bosque.
The 143-cap international was controversially left out of Jose Mourinho's starting line-up for the trip to Malaga recently in favour of Antonio Adan.
The Spanish champions went on to lose 3-2 in Andalusia but the 61-year-old has backed his skipper to bounce back.
"Iker arrived at the age of 10," he was quoted as saying by Marca.
"His parents deserve a lot of merit, having brought him to the training centre, and I don't think the were made of money.
"Iker is the pride of Real Madrid. He is the only one to have come through the youth team, and it would be good to recognise what he was done as he's done a lot.
"He carries the values of Real Madrid."
