Porto, Dec 24 (IANS) The third goalkeeper at Portuguese football club Porto, young Mexican Raul Gudino, is delighted to be working alongside Spanish great Iker Casillas and feels that this experience will be good for his career.
“It’s a dream come true, who would not want to be training with him?” he said, reports Efe.
Gudino, 19, who normally plays as a starter in the reserve team in the Portuguese second division, called Casillas a great teammate and a great friend, adding that he is trying to learn everything from him to improve his skills.
Since his arrival this summer from Real Madrid, Casillas has played as first goalkeeper of the Portuguese team.
Gudino also had praise for the second goalkeeper of the team, Brazilian Helton, whom he admires for his seniority and for his entire career at Porto, where he celebrates 11 seasons this year.
