Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has once again denied rumours of a rift between him and Cristiano Ronaldo, and has accused the media of attempting to create a negative atmosphere around the club.
The legendary glovesman addressed the press today, and claimed that his relationship with the Portuguese international is as strong as ever.
"There are people who want to create controversy, and a bad atmosphere in the dressing room. The truth is the opposite. We get along very well.
"There is no rift or confrontation, quite the contrary. He is a great guy who is very jovial, and we are not people who like to cause problems in the dressing room. This is a healthy group."
Casillas added that he hoped his comments would put an end to the sniping and allow los Blancos to get on with the task of playing football.
"Behind closed doors there is a good atmosphere and good vibes. I do not say anything bad in the dressing room. We must turn the page, and forget about little things like this."
