Iker Casillas suffers injury blow

Sergio Ramos said the noise inside Galatasaray’s stadium meant he did not hear any call from Iker Casillas during the incident in which the Madrid keeper injured a rib in his sides’s 6-1 Champions League win.

Casillas -- who was making his first competitive Madrid appearance in 238 days after being supplanted by Diego Lopez -- was forced off after just 14 minutes when Ramos caught him with an accidental elbow as the goalkeeper came from his line to make a routine catch.

Initial reports which suggested no bone was broken in the clash, were confirmed on Wednesday morning when a club statement said that "after the tests (CAT scan) at Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital the medical team have diagnosed a bruised left rib which will be treated".

The defender told Madrid’s website that the sheer volume inside the Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi had made it very difficult for players to hear each other during the game.

“It was a shock -- I could not see if Drogba was behind, we lacked a bit of communication and I jumped, with the bad luck of bumping into Iker,” Ramos said. “These are things that happen in the game, and my first impression was it is nothing serious. We hope he is back with us as soon as possible. If he said something I did not hear it.

"You must congratulate the Galatasaray fans for how they support their team. It was very difficult to communicate with the rest of the team.”

Casillas -- who had his hand broken by another team-mate, Alvaro Arbeloa, back in January -- did not seem to have any bad feelings about the incident. Ramos later tweeted a photo of the Spanish international colleagues joking around on the plane home.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti also suggested post-game that the problem was not too serious.

“Casillas had really bad luck, but I hope he will be okay in three or four days,” Ancelotti said. “In the first moments of the game he made a great save, showing he is in good form. He will recover quickly, I believe.”

Lopez, who also made a number of superb stops after replacing Casillas, told reporters afterwards that nobody liked to see a team-mate getting injured.

"We feel bad because of the injury to a team-mate," he said. "It was a knock and we still do not know the extent of the injury. If you get an elbow it can do damage or you can be injured."
