Mourinho recalls Casillas for Cup clash



Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho recalled goalkeeper Iker Casillas for Wednesday's Spanish Cup clash against Celta Vigo having controversially dropped the club captain to the bench for the last two La Liga games.

Casillas had been axed in favour of deputy Antonio Adan, with the move interpreted as an attempt by Mourinho to reassert his authority over a campaign which has seen Real slip 16 points behind Barcelona in the title chase.

Casillas was called into action after just six minutes of Saturday's 4-3 win over Real Sociedad after Adan was red-carded.

Real go into Wednesday's Spanish Cup last-16 tie trailing Celta Vigo 2-1 after the first leg.
