Casillas recalls the heart attack: “If I had not been on the pitch, I would have died now”

MADRID (SPAIN) – Iker Casillas has returned to talk about the heart attack that hit him last May while he was training with Porto.

Here are the statements made by the former Spanish national team goalkeeper at "As".

"I remember the heart attack as if it were yesterday … I was terrified. I was saved only because I was on the field.

If I had been at home or anywhere else, I would have died by now … I owe everything to the doctor from the Port who saved my life.

In those cases it is essential to act quickly. The port doctor intervened immediately. If he hadn't, I wouldn't be here to tell him … ".

Coronavirus, Casillas' idea: "End the season in December, coinciding with the calendar year".

End the season in December, to coincide with the calendar year: the proposal is from the former number one in Spain and candidate for the presidency of the Iberian football association Iker Casillas.

According to the former Real Madrid and Porto goalkeeper, given that the football season could be postponed by "3 or 4 months" for the coronavirus emergency, the championship could end in December with the calendar year and thus adapt to the Cup of the Qatari World of 2022 , to be held in November.

However, Casillas' proposal did not find the approval of the president of the Liga Javier Tebas , according to which this idea would cause damage to the club coffers. (source ANSA).
