September 11, 2022

IKER CASILLAS has listed his top five goalkeepers in the world – but could only find room for ONE Premier League star.

The Spain legend, now 41, is regarded as one of the greatest shot-stoppers of his generation.

However, he was forced to retire in 2020 – months after suffering a heart attack during a training session in 2019.

But clearly Casillas has kept his eye on the game – and was able to rattle off his top five list with ease.

Only one star on our shores was considered though, with three LaLiga keepers mentioned.

Speaking to 433, Casillas named Real Madrid star Thibaut Courtois as his No1.

Barcelona star Marc-Andre ter Stegen was fourth, according to Casillas.

Meanwhile, German legend Manuel Neuer made up the top five.
