Casillas Joins Porto’s Pre-Season Practice 2 Months after Heart Attack

LISBON – Porto’s Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas took part in the pre-season training for the 2019-20 season on Monday, two months after he suffered a heart attack and underwent a surgery.

“Back to work. First day,” the 38-year-old wrote on his Facebook account with a photo of him with his teammates.

The former Real Madrid captain cast major doubt about his ability to continue in the sport after he suffered a heart attack during a training session with his current team, with which he has been playing since 2015 and recently signed a contract extension.

“Retirement, there will be a day that I will have to retire. Let me announce this when the moment comes. For now ... everyone relax!” Casillas posted to Twitter to respond to rumors following his surgery.

Casillas made his professional debut with Real Madrid under the then coach, Welshman John Benjamin Toshack, against Athletic Bilbao in September 1999 in San Mames at the age of 19.

At Real Madrid, Casillas won the UEFA Champions League three times, LaLiga five times, the Copa del Rey twice, the Spanish Super Cup four times and the FIFA Club World Cup twice.

He has to his name 187 Champions League appearances, the most of any goalkeeper, and the highest number of clean sheets in the tournament: 59.

Capped 167 times, Casillas captained the Spain national team that won the 2010 South Africa FIFA World Cup and the European Championship in 2008 and 2012.
