Porto Goalkeeper Iker Casillas Speaks On Retirement After Suffering Heart Attack

Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas has denied reports claiming he was due to announce his retirement after suffering a heart attack earlier this month.

Casillas, who turns 38 next week, was rushed to hospital on May 1 after suffering an acute myocardial infarction at the club’s PortoGaia Training Center.

He was discharged from hospital five days later after undergoing a catheterisation but there were questions over whether the 167-capped former Spain captain would return to playing, with reports on Friday suggesting that a retirement announcement was imminent.

However, Casillas, who won five La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies during a 16-year spell with boyhood club Real Madrid before joining Porto in 2015, has denied those suggestions and instead shared news of a positive medical check-up.

“There will be a day I have to retire. Let me announce the news when that time comes,” he said on social media.

“For now, quiet. Yesterday I had a review with Dr Filipe Macedo. All very well. That’s really great news I wanted to share with everyone!”

Previously, Porto’s club doctor Nelson Puga said he believes Casillas will make a full recovery from his heart attack but said it is too early to tell if he will play professionally again.
