Porto Keeper, Iker Casillas Suffers Heart Attack At The Club’s Training Ground
Iker Casillas suffers heart attack but is believed to be in stable condition
The Real Madrid legend has reportedly been taken to hospital after suffering a heart attack
Iker Casillas has suffered a heart attack, according to reports from Portugal.
The Real Madrid legend has been taken to hospital but is believed to be in a stable condition.
Porto confirmed the terrifying news to TVI, but say the Spanish stopper is stable and “doing well”.
Casillas is expected to be ruled out for the rest of the season.
The Porto shot-stopper, 37, recently signed a new contract with the Primeira Liga club. The deal is for one more year with the option of another season, which could keep him at Porto until he is 40.
After signing his new contract in March, Casillas said: “Today is a very special day. I feel at home at this club. I want to stay here until I finish my career as a footballer.
“When I got here, many would think it would be to play a year or two and finish. I only have words of appreciation to this club. Not only to the club but to the city itself.
“Our idea is to compete for the missing titles. We have the total focus on the championship and the possible final of the Portuguese Cup, where we want to be. In the Champions League, anything can happen.
“My head is only in FC Porto. I will finish my career here and represent the values of the club and the values of the Portistas. After that, frankly, I don’t know, but I hope I’m always tied to football.”
