Iker Casillas has played down his controversial omission from Real Madrid's line-up against Malaga, insisting he must accept coach Jose Mourinho's decision and focus on regaining his starting berth

Mourinho caused a stir after choosing to start with back-up goalkeeper Antonio Adan for the Malaga match. 

Casillas said: “The coach decides which team he thinks is best for each match and you need to accept the decision. I’m not used to being a substitute, but above Iker Casillas or any player is the team.”
