Former Real Madrid Goalkeeper, Casillas, Retires From Football

Former Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, has retired from football at the age of 39.

Casillas made the announcement on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

“The most important thing is the path you travel and the people who accompany you, not the destination that it takes you.

“I think I can say, without hesitation, that this has been the right path and the dream destination. Thanks.”

Casillas had a 22-year playing career with Real Madrid and FC Porto and the Spanish national team.

The goalkeeper won the World Cup and two European Championships with Spain, and five La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies with Real Madrid.

Casillas joined Porto in 2015 but has not played since suffering a heart attack during training in April 2019.

During his recovery, he was given a role on the club’s coaching staff in July 2019.

He made 156 appearances for the Portuguese side, winning two Primeira Liga titles and one Portuguese Cup.
