Real Madrid Legend, Iker Casillas Suffers ‘Suspected Heart Attack’ Two Years After First Incident

Published

on

Iker Casillas, Real Madrid and Spain legend was reportedly rushed to hospital last week after suffering a second heart attack in two years.

The 2010 World Cup winner previously suffered a heart attack during a training session with Porto in 2019 and left the hospital five days after the incident.

He retired from playing just over a year after his first scare at Porto.

Reports in Spain claim that Casillas has suffered another issue with his heart.

Spanish outlet Hola stated that the Real Madrid icon was playing padle tennis last week with some friends before suffering ‘severe chest pains’.  

He was rushed to hospital, although Casillas is said to have been able to walk through the front doors by himself. And after an examination by doctors, it was reportedly ruled out of being a high-risk problem.

Casillas was allowed to be discharged later that day from Quironsalud Madrid University Hospital.

Last year, Casillas opened up on the terrifying ordeal he suffered in the final few months of his playing career.

“There is a sensation of half a second, or not even that, when you take a breath of air and it tastes different,” Casillas said in November 2020.

“I noticed that I felt heavy and short of air, and I began to think it might be an allergy. Then, when I went to the goalkeeping coach, I felt my chest begin to tighten and I noticed that I was running out of air.

“I told him, ‘Roberto, give me sugar or something because I feel wrong and I don’t know what’s wrong with me’. I lay down on the ground and I could see something serious was happening to me.

“It’s like you’re in a pool and suddenly you want to get out and you can’t, it was an anguish. I was getting more and more short of breath. ‘Robert, please call the doctor,’ I said. ‘I’m drowning’.”

Casillas, who spent most of his career with Real Madrid made 725 appearances for the Spanish giants. He won three Champions Leagues, five La Liga titles, and two Copa del Rey crowns. He also led Spain to glory, winning three major tournaments, Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, and Euro 2012.

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
