Real Madrid's Casilla ordered not to speak Catalan

Real Madrid media officer orders Kiko Casilla not to speak Barcelona’s language [VIDEO]

May 9, 2016 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
Real Madrid have renewed their rivalry with Barcelona as the fight for the league title gets tougher.

The rivalry between two La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona seems to have reached a whole new level. This was quite evident last weekend after Los Blancos’ 3-2 win over Valencia. As their second-choice shot stopper Kiko Casilla was answering different questions from journalists, one particular journalist from Catalunya Radio asked him a question in Catalan, and then requested him to respond in Catalan.

It should be noted that Catalan is the official language of the people from Catalonia, the home of FC Barcelona. By virtue of being a former Espanyol player, a club based in Catalonia, Casilla is a fluent speaker of the language.

Just when he was about to respond to the question in Catalan, a Real Madrid press officer interrupted and asked him to respond in Spanish.

Watch the interview below:

The incident attracted the wrath of Barcelona fans, who accused the Santiago Bernabeu outfit of violating their player’s freedom of speech and expression. Here are some reactions on Twitter:
