Casillas: I'll fight to get job back

Iker Casillas said he is fighting to give Jose Mourinho no choice but to reinstate him in goal after he was dropped for Real Madrid's league clash with Malaga last month.

The controversial decision prompted much debate, especially after Real went down 3-2 with back-up goalkeeper Antonio Adan taking Casillas' place.

"I'm training myself to fight, to fight and to recover the position," the Madrid captain said on Monday. "It is the goal that I have and that the coach selects me in the next game."

Mourinho claimed the decision was "purely technical" and insisted he did not regret dropping the Real stalwart despite defeat leaving the Blancos 16 points behind Barcelona.

Casillas has been only professional and discreet about Mourinho's decision and Monday told reporters he is just determined to regain his position.

"I feel good but I'm not a machine, I have to train every day and there are better and worse times, but I feel fine," the Spain international said. "Above Casillas is Madrid. The decision is the coach's. In any case, the day I no longer have the desire to work, I'll stop."
