The emotional message of Iker Casillas, in an interview with the newspaper Cordoba Good News, while Iker is recovering from heart problems that almost removed him from football.
The doctors who took care of him played a transcendental role in saving the life of one of the main architects of the first World Cup in the history of the Spanish national football team. The goalkeeper wanted to dedicate some emotional words to them, thanking them for what they did for him. “The difficult thing is not to play in front of 80,000 people, but to operate on a heart,” said the Spaniard, praising the profession of the people who saved his life during the welcome of 174 new residents at San Joao Hospital.
You have to be thankful because I was very lucky. You have to put a smile on your face right now. I am touched by so many expressions of love. Those words were spoken by Iker Casillas, with his wife Sara Carbonero by his side, after he left the hospital in Porto after suffering a heart attack during a training session with his team on 1 May.
Casillas shows that, as well as being a great professional, he is a great person and we want to echo that.
We hope you have a very early recovery Iker!
