Porto president confirms Casillas' retirement from football

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas decided to retire from football once and for all after a career full of achievements, through which he was able to dig his name with gold letters as one of the best goalkeepers in history.

Iker Casillas has not yet been officially announced on his official social media accounts, but the Porto president confirmed that Casillas had decided to retire before announcing his candidacy for the post of president of the Spanish Football Federation on Monday.

"Casillas had lunch with me before he ran for the presidency of the Spanish Football Federation, and he told me of the decision to end his career as a player," said Porto president Pinto da Costa.

The move comes from the famous Spanish goalkeeper to branch out into his presidential campaign in the Spanish Football Federation, and to compete with Luis Rubiales, who will be his opponent in the elections.

Casillas was in a satisfactory condition at the end of last season, although he refused to retire and took over as a mediator between the players and the management at Porto until his health allowed him to return to the pitch.

But Casillas apparently changed his plans and decided to hang his shoes at the age of 38, awaiting the official announcement from the player in the coming hours.
