Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says that Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas has the "experience and character" to deal with ongoing criticism.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti became irritated when questioned on the club's goalkeeping situation on Monday afternoon.

Iker Casillas has started the season between the sticks, but was whistled by some sections of the Bernabeu crowd during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid.

It has been claimed that Keylor Navas could start against Basel in the Champions League this week, but Ancelotti has hinted that Casillas is still his number one.

"The discussion of who our team's goalkeeper should be does not exist. I will not feed the debate going on in the media and online," he told reporters at a press conference.

"The debate is closed for me, I want to be clear on that. Debates on who should play for my team do not exist. I will never speak of which goalkeeper I play this season.

"Casillas has experience and character so he knows how to react to get through a situation like being whistled."

Costa Rica international Navas was signed from Levante this summer and enjoyed an impressive World Cup.
