Porto’s President Denies Calling Iker Casillas “a complete fiasco”

Porto president Jorge Pinto da Costa has denied reports in Spain that he labelled the signing of Iker Casillas “a complete fiasco”.

Da Costa was quoted in Spanish paper El Confidiencial as telling a Portuguese businessman that Casillas was an expensive mistake but the club president has said the Portuguese businessman has been dead since 2009.

Da Costa said: “This news did make me laugh because it says that I was at a dinner at the home of ‘my friend’ José Manuel de Mello.

“But I have no idea who he is. I am told that he existed but, unfortunately for his family, I think he died some years ago. I never dined or lunched with the deceased, so it is absurd.”

And a Porto statement confirmed they want Casillas to sign a new contract: “FC Porto has expressed the intention with Iker Casillas to trigger the clause to extend for another year (until 2018) the player’s contract.”
