Real defender backs fans against goalkeeper after Atletico defeat.
Real Madrid defender Pepe has backed the club’s fans after they were heard whistling and jeering their goalkeeper Iker Casillas at the end of last night’s game, according to Sport.
The Spanish international has been off-form for some time now, and although he was not at fault for either goal in Real’s latest defeat at home to fierce rivals Atletico Madrid, he came under attack from a large section of supporters at the Bernabeu.
Pepe may too be concerned by Casillas’ overall drop in form, and appears to have backed the fans and their right to aim criticism at the club’s keeper.
“The fans are always right,” he said after the game. “I have not heard them but if they have, the fans are always right.”
