Iker Casillas is retiring, said Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa, president of FC Porto, the second and last club of the iconic Spanish goalkeeper. The former Real Madrid goalkeeper, now 38, has not replayed since he suffered a heart attack in May 2019. But he had not made his retirement sport official. Thus, the man with the 167 capes with La Roja will devote himself to something else, since he announced on Monday on his Twitter account that he was applying for the Spanish football federation (RFEF).

He has been impressive throughout his career, made in only two clubs, FC Porto and Real Madrid, “Porto president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa told Portuguese media.
