Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas says he is delighted to see the back of former Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o, who has departed for Inter Milan. The former Real Madrid and Real Mallorca goal-getter, who netted 108 goals in 145 league outings for the Catalans, was part of a summer swap deal that saw Inter forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic head in the opposite direction. And Casillas, who has seen returning Real president Florentino Perez splash more than £200 million on Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Xabi Alonso and Raul Albiol, believes Barca will only be weaker with the loss of their goal-machine. “Honestly, I am glad that Eto'o has gone to Inter because he was a nightmare for me,” he said. “I wish him all the best in Italy because he is a true professional. “Ibrahimovic is a very good player and can create danger for you at any moment, but he is a different player who is nothing like Samuel.” REAL MADRID FANS!
