Casemiro Admits Spanish Fans Will Be Rooting for Liverpool
Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro admits that everyone in Spain that doesn’t support Madrid will be rooting for Liverpool in Saturday’s Champions League final in Kiev.
Madrid are aiming for a third consecutive Champions League title and a fourth in five years, and the Brazilian thinks Madrid’s success makes them easy to dislike.
“In Spain, fans from other clubs will be supporting them, yes. There is a current of anti-Madrid feeling, there's no doubt about that,” he told El Larguero.
“When someone isn't a Madrid fan, they always go against us because Real Madrid is the best team in the world. People always take the opposite side. We're used to it.”
“It's because we are Madrid, for the club's history. The fans who support Madrid would give their lives for the club, but those who aren't want us to lose".
