- Real Madrid’s legendary Goalkeeper Iker Casillas has retired
- He spent the last five seasons at Porto FC
A heart attack suffered in training on May 1st 2019 has kept Iker Casillas from playing football. He was still part of Porto’s squad, but was an inactive member and acted as a link between the players and the management.
Now, the legendary goalkeeper has decided to hang his boots and gloves. He is widely considered the best Spanish goalkeeper of all time and one of the best in the world to ever play at that position.
Iker Casillas debuted with Real Madrid when he was 18-years-old in 1999. Since then he has defened Real Madrid’s goal in over 500 games, helping the team win many valuable titles in the process. He has won 3 Champions League and 5 La Liga titles during his time at Real Madrid. It’s expected that he will now return to Real Madrid in a management role close to Florentino Perez.
For us Real Madrid fans he will always be a legend. He has saved our club many times with spectacular saves and was the hero for many of us. We at Daily Madrid would like to thank Iker Casillas from the bottom of our hearts and wish him the best in the future!
