Decorated goalkeeper Iker Casillas says he has yet to decide who he will back to win this year's coveted Ballon d'Or.

The Spain and Real Madrid captain is himself a contender for the award - held by Lionel Messi - after guiding La Roja and Los Merengues to Euro 2012 and La Liga success respectively.

He faces stiff competition, however, from favourites Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, while compatriots Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta are also expected to get their fair share of votes.

"I have to analyse it (who he will vote for) well," Casillas told reporters during a visit to Caracas. "It's a tough vote because there are many very good players.

"But I have plenty of time to think about it as I don't have to vote until December."

When quizzed on his prospects, Casillas simply replied: "So many people also enjoy a good save with a great dive from a goalkeeper."
