Iker Casillas isn’t happy with the direction of his virtual career either


Little is going Iker Casillas’ way these days — from Spain’s 2014 World Cup embarrassment to his Real Madrid exit to his current form at Porto — and that has now extended to the virtual world of FIFA 16.

Casillas was so disturbed by a screenshot from the video game that had him announcing his retirement in 2018 at the age of 36 that he shared it on Instagram and told EA Sports “too soon” and “not yet” with a bunch of thumbs down emojis to really drive his point home. It is not entirely clear that he knows this is an entirely fictional video game future and not evidence of EA Sports teaming with Jose Mourinho to force him into retirement against his will.

Anyway, that rumbling you hear is David De Gea’s groan upon seeing this Instagram post and realizing that he will never start for Spain in a major tournament.
